An Essential Guide to Landscape Photography
Using a fabulous collection of landscape photography, Peter Watson's latest book gives you both the inspiration and knowledge you need to take stunning digital photographs.
Calling on his wide-ranging experience over a long and successful career, and a naturally artistic eye for the aesthetically pleasing landscape image, Peter guides the reader to learn the skills and techniques that will allow them to achieve magnificent results themselves.
Starting with a brief introduction on digital photography, Peter then gives clear advice on choosing the right equipment and explanations of the techniques you will need for photographing in an outdoor environment. The core of the book deals with light, composition, close-ups and locations by showcasing striking images and then offering comprehensive and entertaining explanations to all aspects of producing them, including screenshots of the Photoshop adjustments made.

As well as landscapes, Peter undertakes commissioned work for clients, primarily architectural photography. He has written several other books including two for GMC: Light in the Landscape - a Photographer's Year (2001) and The Field Guide to Landscape Photography (2002); and three for Photographers' Institute Press: Capturing the Light (2005), Reading the Landscape (2009) and Seasons of Landscape (2010).
