Landscape photography looks so easy. That’s how the eBook begins. Only to reveal, some paragraphs later, that creating an evocative landscape photograph is not as easy as it first appears. That’s where this eBook enters. In its pages Glenn Randall expertly explains the art, technique, and craft required to create astounding outdoor images. Move beyond the ordinary landscape photo and craft images that will make the viewer feel the same emotion you felt when taking it.
The Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography is intended for those who already understand the basics of photography and are ready to master the finer nuances of creating magnificent landscape photographs. Whether you plan on ascending epic mountain ranges or shooting a sunset in your own back yard, this book will be a helpful guide to create better images.
In this book, there are discussions about exposure and composition—providing the best techniques to calculate exposure in even the most challenging lighting conditions. Randall also dives into compositional techniques, moving beyond the basics to discuss color, balance, and depth. He addresses key scientific concepts that impact landscape photography, such as geography, optics, vision, and psychology. Included in these discussions is how he uses contemporary technology to aid in his preparation, as well as coverage of digital capture techniques and postprocessing to achieve spectacular landscape photographs.
With a foreword by Reid Callanan, Director of the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops, The Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography, the eBook, will help readers to create a landscape photograph that stands out from the crowd, like those from photographer, author, and instructor Glenn Randall, who has been creating spectacular images for decades, and now shares his hard-earned wisdom in this eBook.
For over 30 years, Glenn Randall has combined his love of the wilderness with his passion for photography to create stunning landscape images. His intimate knowledge of atmospheric optics, weather conditions, and the landscapes he photographs allows him to find an intersection between magical light and stunning subject matter, resulting in exceptional images.
Glenn has authored 200 magazine articles, with his work featured in Outdoor Photographer, Outside, National Geographic Adventure, New York Times Magazine, and many others. He has also authored nine books, including two books of landscape photographs—Rocky Mountain National Park Impressions and Colorado Wild & Beautiful—and he recently completed a seven-year project titled Sunrise from the Summit, in which he shot the sunrise (and occasionally the sunset) from the summit of all fifty-four Colorado Fourteeners (peaks over 14,000 feet).
