There are many general titles on landscape photography, but few that really tackle the issue of composition in great depth. The Art of Landscape Photography assumes a good working knowledge of the technical basics – such as correct exposure, filtration, and sharpness – and concentrates on the ‘heart and soul’ of landscape photography: the principles of composition and aesthetic design to convey meaning and emotion.

While technique will not be ignored, the emphasis will be on how it impacts on the aesthetics of the image – for example, using filtration to enhance the mood of a scene rather than simply to balance the extremes of contrast.

Because of the nature of the subject matter, this is very much a picture-led book, with numerous example pictures to illustrate the compositional points being discussed. At the back of the book there will be thumbnails of all the pictures used, with a summary of the technical details – camera, lens, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, filtration – to ensure that those who crave technical information are not disappointed.
