Designed to help photographers create exciting, professional-looking images, from animals and flowers to broad landscapes, this guide covers a range of outdoor subjects and combines sound guidance with spectacular, full-color images and features clear, how-to instruction suitable for intermediate to advanced photographers.
Focusing on different photographic elements, such as color, texture and form, readers will learn how these elements can be altered using filters, lighting, film stock and other devices to produce breathtaking results. Each discussion features two to three images illustrating the effects of Zuckerman's masterful techniques. In addition, photographers will find a chapter discussing equipment options, as well as a chapter filled with superb advice for shooting in the field.
