Creative Nature and Outdoor PhotographyCreative Nature and Outdoor Photography Professional and amateur photographers alike will find an array of strategies in this guide that demonstrates how to use classic visual design principles to create strong, compelling, nature photos. Veteran photographer and naturalist Brenda Tharp presents a full-colour guide that incorporates classic design principles with a deeper understanding of the natural world and its moments. While many photographers may be experts with the technical aspects of photography, they must also know how to incorporate visual design, strong composition, mood, and bold use of colour in order to take their work to the next level. Learning to capture the moment in nature, which, as all photographers know, is an unpredictable subject at best, is the primary focus of this reference. Readers will find not only dozens of specific techniques for effective outdoor photography, but also practical advice for creating photographs that are emotionally compelling and, in turn, an artistic success. Individual chapters are devoted to such topics as "Light - The Raw Material", "The Elements of Visual Design", "Using Color Effectively", and "Putting It All Together". Plus, clear and to-the-point exercises along with 200 full-colour reproductions aim to inspire readers to achieve more creative, more expressive and more personal photographs. Outdoor Photography.

Outdoor PhotographyOutdoor Photography: Take Control of Your Pictures (Cicerone Techniques S.) Photography and the outdoors could have been made for each other. This book has been produced for outdoor enthusiasts who want their photographs to do full justice to the quality of their outdoor experience. A central theme is that point and shoot is a state of mind. It is not what camera you have, but how you use it that really counts. And how you use it depends first on seeing, and on knowing what you want your pictures to convey. There is still a place for technique, and essential technical concepts are introduced and explained in the clearest possible language, and with a sense of humour. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on practical advice, and on integrating photography with the rest of your outdoor life. There are chapters on landscape, action and wildlife and close-up photography. Throughout the book the text and illustrations are related specifically to climbing, cycling, caving, and many other activities. Specific advice is given for compact camera users. The book is illustrated with over 100 colour photographs, chosen both to illustrate specific points and to provide inspiration. Outdoor Photography.
