Seeing Landscapes met all my expectations, with fab pictures included. This is not my first Charlie Waite book, but I have enjoyed this one equally
as much as the other one. If you love simply looking at Landscape photographs, or if you enjoy actually making Landscape photographs, whichever you prefer, then this book is for you. In his calm and gentle way, via his photography, Charlie Waite leads you to some beautiful places. You may even want to visit these places for yourself. A great book.

The images and concise text have helped to push me into investing in MF equipment of my own. The man has a fantastic eye and achieves his stunning images with a relatively straightforward camera set up. I have found that emulating this "low-tech" approach has helped me to be far more careful in my composition. This really is about "Seeing Landscapes"! You can become a better photographer by reading this book.

I was looking for a photography book on landscapes that, not only gave me technical instruction, but also inspired me to produce great photos. What I liked about this book was that it covered both - for each of the fantastic photos in this book, the author has outlined the camera, film, lense, filter, time of day etc - this is extremely helpful for improving your technical skills.
But more importantly, this book really does teach you how to 'see' a good picture. OK, so this is a very personal thing and each person sees a landscape differently - but by giving you things to look out for and by sharing the author's personal experiences of each of the photos, it really does help you to produce better pictures.
An excellent reference book and an inspiring read.

If your passion is Landscape Photography then this is for you. As the title suggests, your eyes are opened wider to the beauties of the landscape around us. Also what is wonderful about this publication is that Charlie explains how he came across the subject and then talks you through each image.
I find this a very personal book, it's as though it has been written especially for each individual reading it, to help them creatively advance in their own photographic journey.
Having said that, if you just want to marvel at great photographs taken all around the world by an artist so in love with his subject, then just sit back and enjoy from the comfort of your favourite chair.

What an inspiration! With modern camera systems largely coping with the technical aspects of photography, Charlie Waite's book cannot fail to help us improve our landscape photography by helping to concentrate on developing the compositional and artistic skills of "seeing" the potential picture. Goodbye to "postcard" photography, welcome to the world of artistic impression!
Right from the front cover our eye is drawn into a new appreciation of scale, depth, light, colour, time of day, composition, angles and symmetry.
Whereas once we might have assumed that a rectangular format was the obvious frame for landscapes, and knew that panoramic views were also an option,how satisfying to see the square format used to such good effect.6cm by 6cm can also be cropped to a rectangular or panoramic alternative.
Perhaps now many of us can be encouraged to dip into the medium format, even if initially it might be via the more economical TLR camera route.
Whatever our preferred equipment, after reading and absorbing this book, landscape photgraphy need never/should never be ordinary again.

I dont have much to add, as the other reviews sum up very well the merits of this book. Charlie Waite writes very eloquently and if you are stuck in a bit of rut with your photography and need some inspiration then this is definitely the book for you. 'Seeing Landscapes' will also make you think more about your compositional technique and the important use of filters.
