Summary

Summary

A beloved classic updated with eighty new images, this is the first book to teach classic composition for nature pictures, with emphasis on how to identify and capture dynamic outdoor patterns. Examining basic design elements shared by flowers, trees, clouds, animals, mountains, rocks, and seashells, the author shows how to recognize the lines, shapes, textures, colors, and movements that make up life itself. Then he explains how to combine these elements to create images with emotional impact as well as good contrast, balance, scale, proportion, and other aspects of skilled design. Gary Braasch s work appears regularly in publications worldwide, notably, The New York Times, National Geographic, Life, Time, Audubon, and Outside magazine. He lives in Nehalem, Oregon.
