- The Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography are intended for those who already understand the basics of photography and who are ready to master the finer nuances of creating magnificent landscape photographs.
The Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography teach photographers how to convert their visual peak experiences-moments of extraordinary natural beauty that evoke a sense of wonder and awe-into stunning images that elicit the same awestruck emotion in their viewers. Randall is an experienced wilderness photographer, and whether you want to venture into the mountains for once-in-a-lifetime shots of raw nature, or simply hone your landscape photography skills from the safety of your back deck, Randall explains the art, science, and craft of creating astounding images. Randall begins by focusing on the art of landscape photography. He describes his three-step process for composing a photograph and shows how good composition is a process that begins with rules but ultimately transcends them. Randall then explores the science behind successful landscape photographs, which requires understanding key concepts from geography, optics, and vision.
