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.
