Understand the seasons, understand landscape photography. Landscape photography has always been one of the most deceptively difficult genres to master, thanks in no small part to the ever-changing conditions. This book helps you cut through that issue and shoot standout landscape pictures whatever time of year, showing not just the technical equipment that will make it easier to capture your vision, but also helping you develop the eye for colour, composition and mood that will make that vision worth capturing in the first place
Chris Gatcum has been involved in photography for over two decades, working as a photographer, journalist, and author. Like many aspiring photographers, his career started at college where a degree course taught him a wide range of skills and technologies, covering both studio and location work, large format photography through to the then-emerging digital technology, and, of course, Photoshop.
He went on to work as a set-builder on a number of high-end advertising campaigns and as a photographer and retoucher, before joining the UK's longest-standing photography magazine, Amateur Photographer, as technical writer. Magazines led to books, and the rest--as the cliché goes--is history...
Chris' books include Creative Digital Photography: 52 Weekend Projects (published as Camera Creative in the US), Light & Shoot: 50 Fashion Photos, and Landscape Photography: The Four Seasons. He currently lives in East Sussex, UK.
