“Advice is accompanied by photographs that serve as excellent examples of the points [Hedgecoe] is making...written in a clear, accessible style...will be of greatest value to those who would like to take better photographs for pleasure or business. Recommended for all libraries.”—Library Journal.

Every photographer--professional or amateur--who gazes upon majestic, snow-capped mountains, a lush green countryside, or a colorful tapestry of autumn leaves instantly reaches for the camera, hoping to capture every nuance of the remarkable scene. But, almost instantly questions of composition, lens choice, film type, and exposure arise. What framing would bring out the most in a landscape, which elements are most important to include, and what setting will truly catch nature's beautiful light and color? World-renowned photographer John Hedgecoe offers a systematic and inspirational solution for every situation, revealing the technical considerations and creative decisions that produced his finest works. Using over 300 photos as examples, he discusses equipment, photographic controls, training the eye to see, and natural factors that shape the landscape. A masterful guide on an extremely popular subject. 160 pages (all in color), 6 3/4 x 10 3/8.
