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.

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.

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.

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.

No photographer was more deeply engaged with the transformative interaction of light and landscape than Galen Rowell. The preeminent outdoor photographer of his time, he spent his career chasing magic light in the high places of the planet. Into this landmark volume he poured all his insights gleaned from those adventures, assembling galleries of his most memorable images to illustrate them. The photographs are arranged in eight exhibits according to the many qualities of light found in mountain environments. Rowell also shares the stories that went into their creation—what he was after and how he achieved it, from preparation and "previsualizing" to the physical challenges of being in the right place at exactly the right time. In addition to explaining how he worked with optical phenomena and natural light, the book traces his development as a photographer—in terms of both philosophy and technique—and recounts his adventures in some of the most remote, dangerous, and beautiful places on Earth. A generation of photographers has learned from the experience, craft, and vision that Rowell passed on in this book, as will future generations. And all who respond to dynamic outdoor imagery will continue to marvel at his achievements. The acclaimed landscape photographer David Muench contributes an illuminating foreword to this new edition.

The first step to creating a successful photograph happens before you even click the shutter: the act of visualizing the final result—viewing the landscape in front of you and seeing, in your mind’s eye, the final image that you want to create—is the true first act of the creative process. Once you know the end result you want to achieve, connecting the dots from capture through post-processing in Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop becomes an intentional and logical act. Instead of randomly (and desperately) pushing and pulling sliders in Photoshop with the hope that your image will look “better,” you execute a logical series of steps that closes the gap between the initial capture and your earlier visualization. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Avenir Next'} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Avenir Next'; min-height: 16.0px} p.p3 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 11.0px Symbol; min-height: 11.0px} span.s1 {font: 11.0px Symbol} span.Apple-tab-span {white-space:pre} In The Landscape Photographer’s Guide to Photoshop: A Visualization-Driven Workflow, photographer, author, and educator Guy Tal provides you with a roadmap to help you learn to implement such a visualization-driven approach in your landscape photography. Guy covers process, workflow, and the hands-on Photoshop techniques you need to know in order to achieve your expressive goals. In this book, you’ll learn: • Techniques and strategies to help you effectively implement visualization in your photographic process • How to perform “gap analysis,” where you learn to identify the gaps between the image at any point in time and the desired outcome • How to use Adobe Camera Raw to optimize your digital negative in advance of further editing in Photoshop • The best ways to set up your Photoshop preferences for optimal performance • How best to employ Photoshop’s tools and features (such as the Healing Brush, Cloning tool, Cropping tool, and blending modes) • How to become proficient with layers, masks, selections, and actions • Dodging and burning techniques to masterfully direct the viewer’s eye • Image-blending techniques for dynamic range and focus stacking • Post-processing strategies for black-and-white conversions, including toning your images • Printing and other output techniques, covering sizing, sharpening, noise reduction, and color management Bringing all of these techniques together, Guy presents a series of image case studies, beginning with his earlier visualization for each image in mind and working through the post-processing, from RAW capture to the final print.

In a career spanning nearly sixty years, Ruth Shellhorn (1909–2006) helped shape Southern California’s iconic modernist aesthetic. This is the first full-length treatment of Shellhorn, who created close to four hundred landscape designs, collaborated with some of the region’s most celebrated architects, and left her mark on a wide array of places, including college campuses and Disneyland’s Main Street. Kelly Comras tells the story of Shellhorn’s life and career before focusing on twelve projects that explore her approach to design and aesthetic philosophy in greater detail. The book’s project studies include designs for Bullock’s department stores and Fashion Square shopping centers; school campuses, including a multiyear master plan for the University of California at Riverside; a major Los Angeles County coastal planning project; the western headquarters for Prudential Insurance; residential estates and gardens; and her collaboration on the original plan for Disneyland. Shellhorn received formal training at Oregon State and Cornell Universities and was influenced by such contemporaries as Florence Yoch, Beatrix Farrand, Welton Becket, and Ralph Dalton Cornell. As president of the Southern California chapter of ASLA, she became a champion of her profession, working tirelessly to achieve state licensure for landscape architects. In her own practice, she collaborated closely with architects to address landscape concerns at the earliest stages of building design, retained long-term control over the maintenance of completed projects, and considered the importance of the region’s natural environment at a time of intense development throughout Southern California. Shellhorn set a standard of creativity, productivity, and respect for the native landscape that defused gender stereotypes—and earned her the admiration of landscape designers then and now.

Critically acclaimed photographer David Ward explores the essential attributes of a successful landscape photograph—simplicity, ambiguity, and beauty—in this intriguing companion to his first book, Landscape Within. David discusses how the notion of beauty has been viewed by artists and psychologists and how, despite various modifications over the centuries, the concept of beauty remains relevant. David suggests that all photographers’ work either poses a question or seeks to impose the photographer’s viewpoint, and he goes on to investigate how photography affects our interpretation of the world around us. Accompanied by a selection of David’s stunning, large-format landscape images, this is an elegant and insightful look into the nature of photography.
