Photographing Changing Light: A Guide for Landscape Photographers

by Ken Scott




This unique approach to outdoor photography will inspire and instruct anyone hoping to capture the beauty of landscape on film. Ken Scott reveals his own personal philosophy of shooting, demonstrated in multiple images and detailed captions. His magnificent pictures show ever-changing landscapes, where variations in light, weather, season, and time of day all have a dramatic impact on how we perceive a scene and influence the choice of lens, viewpoint, framing, and focus. Scott works with simple, affordable equipment, and never uses filters or special effects that would ruin the integrity of the natural setting. The result: spectacular images derived from techniques that all photographers will want to try.
