Whatskills or requirements, therefore, does a successful landscape photographer need? An ability not tomind getting cold or wet is one that springs to immediately to mind, but a landscape photographeralso has to understand how the weather and the seasons affect the landscape. Navigational skillsare useful to find potential subjects. Above all, empathy for the natural world is a prerequisite.Beginning with a comprehensive guide to the choice of cameras, lenses, and other equipment andaccessories, Taylor goes on to discuss the fundamentals of exposure—aperture, shutter speed,ISO, dynamic range—and an appreciation of the effects of light on the landscape, at various timesof the day and in all types of weather. Practical advice on planning for an outdoor shoot coversthe basics of assembling a travel kit, using maps and choosing a location, consulting sunrise andsunset times, weather forecasts, and predicting tides. The author's own stunning photographytransports the reader from coastal regions to hills and mountains, through woodland andmoorland, in all seasons and weather, in the light of day and the dark of night. Authoritative textexplains the theories and "rules" of composition: the importance of balance, harmony andsymmetry, the power of leading lines, visual weight, and the ability to create depth in an image. Afinal instructive chapter details the practical techniques of postproduction workflow, from theprocessing of images to proofing, to displaying or printing the final results.
