Once you realise that the defining quality of any landscape is the weather then you are truly able to master landscape photography. The weather governs the two most important features of landscape images, notably lighting and mood. Tony Worobiec, as a master of landscape photography, provides us with a guide that is both practical and inspiring for amateur photographers.
Photographing Landscape Whatever the Weather is comprehensive in its coverage of photography in all types of weather, from the familiar rain and sunshine to the more unusual and dramatic dust storms and deserts. If you want to know how to take the best images of rainbows or lightning then this is the book for you. Tony also offers practical advice on suitable clothing, equipment care and understanding weather forecasts so that you can achieve the best images whatever the weather. This book covers all the angles when it comes to landscape and weather photography.
This PhotoActive book is designed for those beginners who want to achieve more with their landscape photography. With the many wonderful photos taken by Tony providing motivation, you can’t help but don your wellies or sun hat in order to get outside to take photographs after reading this book.
