The Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography from Rocky Nook teaches photographers how to convert their visual peak experiences, or moments of extraordinary natural beauty that evoke a sense of awe and wonder, into stunning images that evoke the same awestruck emotion in their viewers. Author Glenn Randall is a master wilderness photographer, and whether you want to venture into the mountains for once-in-a-lifetime shots of raw nature, or simply hone your landscape photography skills from the safety of your backyard, you will learn the art, science, and craft of creating astounding images. Beginning with the art of landscape photography, Randall describes his three step process for composing a photograph and shows how good composition is an organic process that begins with rules but ultimately transcends them.
Exposure is a central topic of the craft of landscape photography, and Randall tackles the challenges of this subject from every angle, from tips on calculating exposures in the field, to achieving correct exposure in high-contrast lighting situations, to the best digital darkroom techniques. The Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography is intended for those who already understand the basics of photography and who are ready to master the finer nuances of creating magnificent landscape photographs.
Explore the science behind successful landscape photographs and understand key concepts about geography, optics, vision, and psychology, including:
- How the position of the sun at sunrise/sunset varies throughout the year, which helps you plan when/where to shoot
- Optics predict where rainbows will appear, polarizers interact with reflections, where to find spectacular light
- Use topographic maps and computerized mapping tools to help find promising shooting locations in the wilderness
- How our visual system analyzes images and the psychology of how we view art
These insights will help you produce successful photographs
