25 years of nature photography instruction in one gorgeous, full-color, hands-on course Anyone can photograph naturea€”just step outside and youa€™re on location. But becoming a good nature photographer takes expert training. In Photographing Nature, Ralph Clevenger, whose images have appeared in such publications as Naturea€™s Best and National Geographic, shares the techniques hea€™s been personally using and teaching to aspiring photographers for the last 25 years in his popular nature photography course at the elite Brooks Institute. In this stunning, four-color course-in-a-book, each chapter opens with a spectacular photo spread from the natural world that Clevenger uses to illustrate themes and techniques essential to mastering nature photography. Just as he does in his classroom at Brooks, Clevenger explains how each photo was captured, the tools and techniques used, and typical problems related to capturing such a photo, along with solutions. Chapters also include sample QaA sessions as well as assignments you can try yourself.
