The Books starts with this author’s statement: “Each year, I travel the Globe to take pictures, often leading photo tours or workshop. The people in these groups are specifically interested in photographing the natural world, yet it’s on these trips that I inevitably hear the question – what is there to photograph?. Truly this is a wrong question to ask.”
John Shaw then gives state-of-the-art instruction. Using his own exceptional work as examples (frequently featured in National Wildlife, Outdoor Photographer, Natural History, Sierra, and Audubon magazines, as well as in calendars, books, and advertisements), the author discusses each type of nature subject and how to approach photographing it (however, he talks more about close-ups but aren’t they lovely?).
His target, a large one: this field guide is useful to every photographer -beginner, serious amateur, semi pro, and pro. Where most books are vague, the author recommends specific equipment to purchase, when to use it and when to avoid it (with a heavy Nikon emphasis).
A seasonal guide to shooting locations, mostly in the United States is included in the book.
