9781861086525: Reading the Landscape: An Inspirational and Instructional Guide to Landscape Photography

In guiding us through the process of interpreting and capturing landscapes digitally, Peter Watson proves that it is not only what we see but how we see it that makes a difference. He challenges us to transform our very gaze even before we click the shutter, and see the world like a skilled artist painting with light.” With patience, a meticulous eye, and his own images, he explains how fields, trees, mountains, and rivers can become a complex yet readable pattern of lines, shapes, colors, and textures. It’s a uniquely scientific approach to seizing creative opportunities in your photography.
