Summary

Summary

Combining inspiration, experience, and technique, this guide to landscape photography goes beyond traditional realistic landscapes and teaches photographers to create their own impressionistic images of the natural world. Instructions are provided for such camera techniques as lens movement, lighting, filtration, and creative exposure, so that photographers can manipulate their images to have dreamlike qualities. Darkroom techniques such as sandwiching negatives, controlling contrast and grain, and color control can be used on their own or with the camera techniques to yield spectacular results.
