Lessons in Landscape

If you have ever wondered how the top photographers manage to produce such stunning landscapes, this book has all the answers. It presents a collection of 80 practical lessons that have been tried and tested in the field, creating a complete course in mastering the art of capturing landscape images of a distinctive and professional quality.  Tips and techniques are provided to help you choose the right equipment and use it correctly in every situation. You will learn the essentials of composition, practise professional methods for observing the landscape creatively, and discover how to use light to maximum effect. A number of simple post-processing adjustments are also explained. These are easy to undertake and will enable you to fine-tune your photographs and boost their appearance without spoiling their integrity: creating processed landscape images that have impact yet remain authentic.

Peter Watson is a contributing photographer to several image libraries and his work appears extensively in books, magazines and calendars, as well as on greeting cards and in exhibitions. As well as landscapes, Peter undertakes commissioned work for clients, primarily architectural photography.
