Description

Digital Nature Photography is the definitive how-to book on photographing nature with a digital camera. Focusing primarily on the art of taking the picture in the field—rather than just manipulating the image after it has been shot—this comprehensive guide is geared to the nature photographer who is fairly new to the world of digital cameras. Packed with step-by-step directions and resplendent full-color examples from the author’s own body of work, readers will receive hands-on practice with lighting, composition, landscapes, sunrises, sunsets, animal portraits, close-ups, manipulating and storing images, and much more. The essential reference for every level of photographer, Digital Nature Photography guides the reader through a magnificent and unique visual experience into the natural world.
