An Exclusive Introduction from Author Harold Davis Dear Amazon Reader, Ia??m passionate about landscape photography. I love getting out, traveling, finding new vistas, and photographing them. But, therea??s a surprising paradox with landscape photography. On the one hand, this kind of photography might seem easy: It isna??t hard to find spectacular landscapes, no specialized gear is needed, and on its face, landscape photography doesna??t seem technically difficult. On the other hand, as Ansel Adams put it, a??Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer, and often the supreme disappointment.a?? Great landscape photography is, in fact, far harder than it looks. Part of the trick is being in the right place at the right time. But even if the scene you are witnessing is sublime, therea??s no guarantee that youa??ll bring back compelling digital landscape imagery without the right creative ideas, techniques, and tipsa??which is where Creative Landscapes: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques comes in. Ia??ve always loved landscape photography, and in the course of my career I have had the opportunity to photograph a wide variety of landscapes from many perspectives. Ia??ve pursued my love of the landscape by hiking solo across the Brooks Rangea??the northernmost Mountain range in Alaskaa??crossing ranging torrents with my camera perched precariously on my back and the rest of my gear on handmade rafts. Ia??ve gone hungry in my pursuit of the wilderness landscape. Ia??ve dangled from small planes and helicopters, lashed in with a harness, to photograph urban and wild landscapes from above. And Ia??ve sought the dark spaces of the night, to photograph landscapes and show them in ways they havena??t been seen before. Digital has changed almost everything about the tools of the landscape photography trade, and how captures are processing in the digital darkroom. My goal in Creative Landscapes: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques is to be your companion and guide in landscape photography. I work with you to find the right locations for your kind of landscape photography, and help you figure out the right time to be there. I share my best creative ideas about landscape photography with you, and explain the equipment, tools, and techniques you need to master. Finally, I show you how I process my landscape work in the digital darkroom. Each of the photos in this book can be used as idea generation for your own worka??how you might approach a specific kind of landscape to make spectacular photos of your own. Ia??ve included the story behind each photo in the book, as well as full technical data about the captures. Like other books in my Creative series, Creative Landscapes is intended to be useful as an idea book. Creative Landscapes is divided into four parts. As youa??ll see, therea??s a great deal of material that covers a lot of ground: Part I: The Tao of Landscapea??Tao is a philosophy with ancient roots that refers to the primordial essence of things, the natural order of existence, and the fundamental aspects of the universe. My approach to landscape photography involves embracing the Tao of the world, and this section begins a conversation about integrating onea??s work holistically with the world around us and the demands of modern life. Part II: Tools & Techniquesa??Explains in detail the camera settings you need to know to make the most of your landscape photography opportunities. Part III: One World, Many Landscapesa??Photographing a mountain landscape is different from photographing a deserta??and both are
