Another Good Entry in a Crowded Field March 12 2012
By Conrad J. Obregon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For the new photographer interested in learning landscape photography, this book is a good place to start.

The book begins with a discussion of the equipment that is required for landscape photography. (Digital single lens reflex camera owners will be pleased to learn they've made a good choice.) This is followed by discussions of exposure, composition and lighting. Next there is a chapter on filters for landscape photography, which recognizes that many such devices have been rendered obsolete in the age of digital post-processing, but that a few provide effects that can't be easily duplicated in the computer. The chapter on the types of landscapes, like mountains or woodlands, provides useful considerations for working in different environments. There is a chapter on advanced techniques, like hyperfocal distance, that scarcely seemed advanced, but rather essential to the aspiring landscape photographer. The book ends with chapters on post-processing and printing and provides a list of assignments. There is a series of FAQs that apparently didn't otherwise fit into the organization of the book.

The book is well written and clear and the images are of good quality and support the text. The first seven chapters all explore basic concepts of image capture and will serve the new landscape photographer well. The authors emphasize several key points, like the fact that the range of light that the camera can capture is more limited than the human eye and they suggest different techniques the photographer can apply to deal with these recurring problems. On the other hand, as might be expected, the chapter on post-processing just skimmed the surface of this area of expertise. Anyone expecting to process their images in Lightroom, Photoshop or other image-processing software will hear a few important concepts that should be kept in mind, but using such software will require a deeper level of study than this book provides. As to printing, the authors seemed to give short shrift to the availability of printer profiles from paper manufacturers keyed to specific printers, and they just surrender when it comes to sharpening. The list of assignments seemed designed to give meaning to the word "workshop" in the title, but reading the first seven chapters, particularly the one on environments, should provide most folks with more information and incentive than this brief chapter.

There a number of excellent books on the market introducing the new photographer to landscapes. This is certainly one of the better ones. But, if you've already read a similar text and are ready to move on to creating more artistic landscapes, this book is not likely to add to your skills.

For landscape beginners a must have Jan. 16 2013
By Bobber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a badly chosen gift as I have more than 50 years experiance as a photographer including 30 as a professional.
Having said that I still learned a few things from these guys. I think it is an excellant learning aid for anybody starting out in landscape work and I would have appreciated it more 15 years ago.
It is nice to look at,well laid out and easy to understand with nice pics.I am really pleased I got it. Mine came from Amazon com where it is well priced.I think the £27 asking price in the UK for a soft cover book is far to much no matter how good.I highly recommend this to all budding landscape shooters.

The landscape photography workshop Aug. 17 2013
By Mikey6119x - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be very informative and clear.. I have always wondered how they pull off those beautiful shots and this book was a great place to start.. It covers creative technique, composition, lighting and all of the stuff in between. Like others have said in the reviews im sure if you are an advanced photographer or professional (landscape photog) anyway this book wouldn't be #1 on your list BUT im sure there is still some helpful info within as this book covers some often overlooked topics and problem areas.. I would consider my self an intermediate photographer who wants to expand my landscape photo knowledge and kick up my landscape photography game and this book was a fantastic starting place...

Amateurs- if you are interested in outdoor photography and or landscapes buy this book it is clear and not to complicated (as all photo books should be IMO) you will surely learn some great stuff

intermediate- I would still recommend this book as it was loaded with excellent information and great insight on how to capture truly fantastic landscape photos!

Advanced/pros - if you are at this level then you probably aren't searching high and low for how to books BUT.. this book has plenty of great info and is absolutely worth the read.. I didn't feel like they held back with the tips or info as many photography books do..Where you feel as if the author doesn't want to let you know everything as you may someday surpass them.. i didn't get that feeling from this book overall i thought it was excellent and definitely worth the read..

This is a beautiful book with much information for an amateur photog like myself to learn. I'm barely into it and have learned quite a bit already.
