Was ok, wasn't as in depth as I had hoped.
I didn't use it as much as other books - I did get a wee bit of useful info out of it.

Save time; take better vacation snapshots July 26 2007
By hayseedPA - Published on
Format: Paperback
Gustav Verderber was right on the money about everything in this book. If you only have a week to explore, save yourself some time and follow his instructions. He has mapped out when the rainbows appear on the falls, gives advice on where to photograph wildlife. Some of the trails he mentions in his book have since been closed due to erosion or wildlife management but if you talk with the Park Ranger Service (not Xanterra!) you should be able to find a comparable walk to capture the images.

The book may be beneath the experienced photographer but for an amateur who just wants better vacation photos and does not have the luxury to spend a year in the park getting them, this is the perfect guide!

I'm so glad I found this book before my trip! Aug. 14 2008
By Annette M. Wilkie - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought three books to prepare for two days photographing Yellowstone National Park and this was the best. It was very helpful for planning times of day to be in various locations and prioritizing stops. My favorite photo was the rainbow on Lower Falls that occured exactly when the author said it would. If you love photography and don't have a lot of time in the park, this book is a must have!

Great Guide for the Scope and Price. Sept. 17 2012
By Arleymon - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have used this book twice to help me photograph the wildlife and landscapes of Yellowstone, and I have found it to be very helpful. I am an amateur photographer who possessed little knowledge of Yellowstone and who wanted to maximize my success while photographing Yellowstone NP. I found this book to be a welcome guide and reference. The target audience is for the photographer who has not enjoyed YNP or has limited knowledge of where and when to take pictures while on a limited time schedule.

Photographing Yellowstone National Park is but one of a series by Countryman Press to help photographers have success in getting good images at destination spots. This book is broken down into sections that give a brief introduction to the park, a recommendation on how to use the book, a section on how the author photographed the park as an ambassador for Kodak in 2003, and detailed information on where and when to photograph any one of six regions in the park. There are area maps and sections describing photographic opportunities in each of the regions with cross references between the text and map for easy location. At the end of the book, the author gives a few suggested daily itineraries that one can follow to get the most out of the experience. The size and length of the book is ideal for taking with you as you travel. It is concise at 88 pages with numerous pictures that will give a person ideas of what they can accomplish while in the park. This is not a coffee table book with very high quality images in it, but for the price, its images allow someone to think about what they wish to take while there.

Since photography is an individual art form, the author gives some general suggestions about lighting, lens choices, and equipment that one might consider using. It is not a guide that will tell you what settings to use or when, because, not only would that be impossible given the time of day and year, that information would take away from the creativity of the photographer who wishes to take pictures with a camera set in anything but the program mode. This is not to say that someone with a point and shoot camera or iPhone will not find the information quite helpful and educational. I am merely suggesting this book cannot be compared to the information a person would receive while taking a photographic workshop offered by a pro while in the park. The book does a great job of addressing the needs of the target audience.

I have recommended this book to several of my friends who are advanced amateurs, semi-pros, and professional photographers, and they all have thanked me for the recommendation. Even as I become more familiar with the park, I will continue to use this book as a guide.

very useful Sept. 3 2008
By Michal Abel - Published on
Format: Paperback
not only for photographers.
But if you do like making more interesting pictures there is plenty of precise and useful information about where and when and how make a nice picture of animals or geisers!

This book is the PERFECT companion for travels in Yellowstone Nov. 29 2011
By Lynne in OC - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this book! I visited Yellowstone with my friend and my daughter on a "Chick's Only" trip. We planned it for a year. I used this book as my primary source for planning what to see in the park and when to see it.

***Even if you're not a photographer, this book is worth the buy just as a planning tool.***

The schedule for the best viewing times and places was a terrific help as we planned our days. We did drive the Blacktail Plateau as suggested, and it was spectacular just as the author said it would be (also not crowded). We saw our only bear on this road--a black bear. ...And Artist Point--what a wonderful place. We were lucky enough to meet the designer of this particular view point (he was in the park with his family).

The references for exposure settings and lenses were so helpful. Also, the tips on places to see that are less travelled (better shots) were great.

I am planning to go back, and I will have this book in hand. Thank you for a terrific guide to my photography and travels in Yellowstone.

...And I did go back this spring. Again, this book played a big part in my planning and photography. I also have recommended it to the members of my photography club. Thanks, again!
