Description

Product Description

The Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography teaches photographers how to convert their visual peak experiences-moments of extraordinary natural beauty that evoke a sense of wonder and awe-into stunning images that elicit the same awestruck emotion in their viewers. Randall is an experienced wilderness photographer, and whether you want to venture into the mountains for once-in-a-lifetime shots of raw nature, or simply hone your landscape photography skills from the safety of your back deck, Randall explains the art, science and craft of creating astounding images.Randall begins by focusing on the art of landscape photography. He describes his three-step process for composing a photograph and shows how good composition is an organic process that begins with rules but ultimately transcends them. Randall then explores the science behind successful landscape photographs, which requires understanding key concepts from geography, optics, vision, and psychology. These concepts include:

  • Understanding how the position of the sun at sunrise and sunset varies throughout the year, which will help you plan when and where to shoot.
  • Understanding optics to predict where rainbows will appear, how polarizers will interact with reflections, and where to find spectacular light.
  • Understanding how to use topographic maps and computerized mapping tools to help you find the most promising shooting locations in the wilderness.
  • Understanding how our visual system analyzes images and the psychology of how we view art. These insights will help you produce successful photographs.
Exposure is a central aspect of the craft of landscape photography, and Randall tackles the challenges of this topic from every angle-from tips on calculating exposures in the field, to achieving correct exposure in high-contrast lighting situations, to the best digital darkroom techniques.Great landscape photography can be mastered with practice and by applying the techniques taught in this book. The Art, Science, and Craft of Great Landscape Photography is intended for those who already understand the basics of photography and who are ready to master the finer nuances of creating magnificent landscape photographs.

Foreword by Reid Callanan
Director, Santa Fe Photographic Workshops

About the Author

Since 1979, Glenn Randall has combined his love of the wilderness with his passion for photography to create stunning landscape images. His intimate knowledge of atmospheric optics, weather conditions, and the landscapes he photographs allows him to find an intersection between magical light and stunning subject matter, which results in exceptional images.

Glenn''s work has been included in calendars for Audubon, Avalanche, Barnes & Noble, Brown Trout, Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy, and Runner''s World. His images have been published in Audubon, GEO, Outdoor Photographer, Outside, SKI, Los Angeles Times Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, New York Times Magazine, and many others. His photographs have also been used by book publishers and corporate clients. At age 56, he has accumulated nearly 1,200 photo credits, including 73 covers, and sold over 10,000 prints.

Glenn has authored 200 magazine articles and nine books, including two books of landscape photographs: Rocky Mountain National Park Impressions and Colorado Wild & Beautiful, both published by Farcountry Press. He recently completed a seven-year project called Sunrise from the Summit, in which he shot the sunrise (and occasionally the sunset) from the summit of all fifty-four Colorado Fourteeners (peaks over 14,000 feet).

When Glenn Randall says the "art, science, & craft" of great landscape photography, he means it. This book is rich with technical details on the making of wonderful images. There are so many topics covered I''d literally never even thought of that it blew my mind.

Since I''m a sucker for Colorado landscapes, I was instantly drawn in and had trouble putting it down. While it is very, very technical, he manages to make it a fairly easy read. And it''s hard to deny that he knows what he''s talking about once you view the photos featured in this book. I couldn''t find one that wasn''t stunning.

I''ve only been learning photography for a little over a year, and this book is without a doubt my most in depth read to date(and I''ve read a ton). But I''ve truly enjoyed it and feel like the details in this book are what I need to take my photography to the next level. I can''t wait for an upcoming trip to Colorado to test out some new ideas I''ve gotten from this book.

I won''t lie, I''m likely going to need to go back and re-read the whole thing again. But with all the wonderful imagery in it, that doesn''t feel like much of a task.

Overall, I can highly recommend this book for the serious amateur shooters or professionals. It might be a little too dense for a first book for the budding photographer, but you''ll at least enjoy the photos in it.

This is a great book!! I first bought the Kindle edition and read it, but have since purchased a hard copy. If you are just getting into landscape photography this book might be more detail then you want. Also, if you are looking for camera settings and equipment for landscape photography this is not your book. But if your ready to move on to the next level, it is great. This book has detailed information on several topics related to natural light, color, the physiology and psychology of what a person sees when looking at a photograph and more. I did not understand all of it on first pass so I am reading it a second time and find I am learning things I missed. I highly recommend this book.

Outstanding book! Often you find a book that shares maybe 3-5 valuable tidbits for your to focus on- this book is different. Within the first 45 pages or so, I found myself writing down many key learns. More and more great tips followed until the end. An example of this is the use of graduated ND filters...I found this section easy to understand and the tips for getting results helpful. The format of the accompanying photos and text really make well and drive home the teaching points. Glenn shares lots of tips for getting the light right for your landscape photography- when stars align to a specific location, sun rise in the sky based upon a location you want to photography- it is all about being prepared and planning well. Highly recommended book and will re-read this again to make sure I stay sharp.

Overall I learned quite a bit from this book but, compared to other landscape photography books, I found it lacking in composition guidelines. The author does cover the "rule of thirds" and gives a few more hints but not much more. The strength of this book is the science of photography. He gives repeated examples of the necessity of planning your shot (e.g. ensuring the moon is in just the right spot for your arch shot) and does an excellent job coving lighting, photographing rainbows and night skies. Great info but I didn''t feel it was complete.

This book is fantastic. The author packs a lot of information in this book. It''s not about the basics of exposure. You need to understand all of that before reading this book. It''s about understanding how to capture great landscape photographs, key techniques to process them, and the basic science behind vision and things like rainbows to give you a better understanding of how to capture them. The chapters on processing multiple exposures to achieve the equivalent of using filters (but better - think irregular shapes on the horizon) are well worth the price of the book alone. To be clear on what I mean by processing, it''s blending and minor adjustments. He does talk about HDR, but only for producing natural images to more closely simulate what the eye sees vs. the dynamic range of the camera. This is not a book about plugins, replacing skies, or any trickery. If that''s what you are after, you''ll want to look elsewhere.

I can''t recommend the book highly enough.

As a Taiwanese, after taking shots of Taiwan landscape focusing on HDR panorama for the past 6 years, I am looking for ways to improve
my alpine photography. This book from an author with 22 years full-time landscape photographer, has shared experiences, provided knowledge,
given information & insights, and evoked inspiration (wonderment!) that goes far beyond my original expectation.

On HDR. My goal in capturing HDR landscape image has always been natural-looking rather than surreal. Before this book, never have I
seen landscape images by use of HDR technique that looks so natural! Glenn’s use of Lightroom to tone-map 32-bit TIFF and the rest is an
eye-opening approach to me. Although Glenn does not specify which HDR software he uses to create 32-bit HDR image file which according
to Christian Bloch of HDRI Handbook 2.0 is critical. Nevertheless, Glenn’s approach has resulted in a high-contrast image that looks both
beautiful and believable.

On panorama. My works on panoramic landscape image has gone to the stage that advices on multi-row panorama is what I need. Glenn
addresses multi-row panorama formally that I do not find in other landscape photography books. His full cross-page work “The Milky Way
Over Huron Peak” on p.178 - 179, a 4 by 10 (4 rows, 10 frames per row. Each frame takes 10’s of second for exposure) or total 40-frame
multi-row panorama at night is an once-in-a-lifetime shot that any landscape photographer can possibly encounter or accomplish. I echo
with Glenn that taking a walk on the wide side (panorama), and you you’ll never again be content to see the world in just one way.

By complete reading this book from cover to cover, some chapters more than once, in a month, I will no longer see the world of alpine
landscape photography in the same way.

The fact that it is crammed full of photographs of Colorada and Utah makes it for me, a superb book as this is where I spend many of my holidays and I recognise places like Arches National Park and the views of the Colorado Rockies that will forever evade my own photographic capacity......although with this technical and motivational book on my desk, perhaps my own abilities will start to improve.

This book is written in a fluent "American" style. There is a lot to be learnt from the author. He explains some science, which is rare in a book about photography. On the one hand he uses astronomy to find the spot and the day where and when to be in order to increase the odds of taking a spectacular picture. On the other hand he uses meteorology for fine tuning the time in the day. He explains why, as a preparation, scouting is necessary. In addition to his photographic equipment, the author carries with him a GPS, a compass, and a protractor (Winkelmesser), and keeps notes for future use. The author advocates to photographically exploit the surroundings, where it is easier to return to under various conditions. Clearly he has advantage over many of use, since he happily lives in Colorado, USA, which along with Utah offers spectacular scenery. The author, with twenty years of experience under the hood, teaches us the craft of landscape photography, in a very personal manner. His motto is: practice the craft, us science, and the art will follow. Wise man!
