Landscape photography is one of the most popular genres for amateur photographers. Mastering the genre, however, takes time: time to perfect exposure, color, composition, and--perhaps above all else--the ability to see and record the landscape in a way that will make your photographs stand above the rest. This guide delves into the world of 16 leading lights, each with their own unique take on how, where, and why the landscape should be recorded. Through probing interviews and beautifully reproduced images, the reader is given an insight into the artist's working practices, from equipment to techniques. Glorious color photographs sit beside atmospheric monochrome, the latest digital techniques rub shoulders with traditional film-based imaging, and conventional landscape mores are countered by experimental artworks, guaranteeing something to inspire every reader.

Updated, expanded, and covering the latest software, this new edition of the bestselling Digital Landscape Photography brings the amazing techniques pioneered by Ansel Adams and his contemporaries to every digital photographer. Ansel Adams' imagery - especially his iconic vision of the American National Parks - is widely published and instantly recognisable. Many photographers will have heard of his renowned Zone System, but that is just the tip of the iceberg; his unparalleled attention to detail, which once required hours in the darkroom with specialist tools, is finally accessible to all. Michael Frye's own photography provides many stunning examples of the results that can be achieved, and as one of Adams' natural successors in the field, he is well placed to analyse the many inspirational shots from the great masters of landscape photography. Combining the cutting edge of today's digital work with some of the best-known photos ever taken, this book a must-read for any landscape or nature photographer.

Man schreibt das Jahr 1591, Istanbul ist vom Schnee bedeckt. Ein Toter spricht zu uns aus der Tiefe eines Brunnens. Er kennt seinen Mörder, und er kennt auch die Ursache für den Mord: ein Komplott gegen das gesamte Osmanische Reich, seine Religion, seine Kultur, seine Tradition. Darin verwickelt sind die Miniaturenmaler, die beauftragt sind, für den Sultan zehn Buchblätter zu malen, ein Liebender und der Mörder, der den Leser bis zum Schluß zum Narren hält. Ein spannender Roman, der, als historischer Krimi verkleidet, immer wieder auch auf die gegenwärtige Spannung zwischen Orient und Okzident verweist.
