Synopsis

Photographing Trees by Edward Parker

With examples from around the world, renowned wildlife photographer Edward Parker reveals the skills and techniques needed to improve your photographs with little or no adjustments to the automatic settings or those which you are comfortable using. The first part of the book explains how the brain perceives an image and how to use this to produce great photos through better composition, better use of light and conscious use of foreground and background. For more advanced photographers, Parker then explains techniques on how to take control of the camera though understanding exposure, focus, aperture, shutter speed, and using flash. The final part of the book looks at the many way in which trees can be photographed, putting all of this into practice, illustrated by stunning images from around the world along with anecdotes on how they were captured.
