Beter picture guide to landscape photography by Michael Busselle

I would just like to share this book I found for a bargain price. It’s about the process and technique to get the most out of landscape photographs.

What I like about this book is the way it is written. It has illustrations, process and static info. Firstly it has large wonderful pictures, captioned with the location where it was taken, and the technical details, like camera, film, filter(s) and lens selection. The most interesting part though is the process. Michael has split the photographic process in 3 parts. Seeing, thinking and acting. Each element of the process has a short text accompanying it, with keywords in a larger and bold font. I think that this is a marvelous idea. You can read it in full once. And when you want to fresh up, or want to look up something, you can just flip through the pages and pick up the important keywords in one glance and reference those to the illustration. The largest part of the book is the section about the photographs and the process of creating them. This part is broken up in three parts: subject, composition and light. These subjects are again broken up into smaller parts. But it also contains a bit about equipment, selecting film, understanding exposure, using filters and even has a few pages on presenting your work.

The book also has a small glossary which can be useful of you are not up to speed with all the basics of photography.

I paid a very low price (for photography book standards) for it, it was a very light read, and it has not disappointed me.
