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.
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.
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.
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.
