Format: Hardcover
The landscape photography in this book is spectacular. Its a collection of fleeting moments of beautiful light, spread over nearly 20 years. The photos are mainly taken in the UK hills, but include other mountains and some settings closer to civilisation. I really like the approach Ken Scott takes. He emphasises simplicity and preparedness to snap the best moment up, an immersion in the surroundings, and an appreciation of the weather. This book acts as an antidote to all the kit oriented digital guides out there, providing some tuition regarding the artistic philosophy required to capture such great scenes. However, there is some equipment advice... less is more. No faffing with a tripod or ND grads here. A trusty manual Pentax ME Super, 3 prime lenses and some spare batteries for the cold. He has a go-light mountaineering background and the locations of the pictures are remote and serene. Only a committed mountain climber and rambler could get into the landscape and weather required to produce these pictures. Very inspiring!

Great shots. Nothing much to learn 6 Sept. 2004
By karl - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book because i was interested in photographing light & more particularly without filters. The author demonstrates here with his excellent photos that one can take great TRUE COLOR pictures without modifying with filters. Good job! Some of the pictures are awesome!

But, very unfortunately, Ken talks more about his feelings, experience etc rather than about how the reader can achieve / take similar photos. He never talked about the technical aspects of those great shots! I dont remember seeing one picture having its exposure & shutter settings!!

To put in a nut shell, after reading the book, you will realise it is possible to take great pictures without costly equipment & filters - still retaining the true colour on the atmosphere!! Great! But the question of 'How to take such pictures & its technical consideration' are unanswered & unexplained. A bit of disappointment.
