Landscapes—The Digital SLR Expert, by Mackie, Neill, Noton, Wiggett, Worobiec ★★★★
This book is a compilation of advice from five accomplished photographers addressing the issue of nature photography. It is a practical book, and, except for the chapter on black and white photography, was focused on advice for obtaining the shot. Thus, advice about composition, lighting, timing, camera settings, lens usage, and special situations were at the forefront. Multiple examples of photographic images were given, and it was helpful to know what settings and lenses were being used to obtain the photos. The B&W chapter offered much easy-to-follow photoshop advice on converting your photos into B&W or duotone specimens. This book was a fun and inspirational read.
