Its handy size is conducive to carrying in the field for on-the-spot reference, and would no doubt be indispensable to amateurs. Though the print is especially tiny in some places, this is a usual drawback of portability when it comes to instructional booklets. Otherwise, there is an impressive range of advice, from the technical to the creative aspects of outdoor photography during any season.

Library Journal
Heilman (Contemporary Landscape Photography: Professional Techniques for Capturing Spectacular Settings) has pared digital landscape photography tips down to the bare essentials of equipment, technique, shooting, creative effects, and editing workflow in this pocket-size field guide. A handy reference section and glossary are also included. Heilman persuasively coaxes beginning enthusiasts to shut off the automatic settings on their cameras and walks them through a wide range of creative choices available through the manual aperture, ISO, and focus settings. Beginners, experienced enthusiasts, and commercial photographers alike will find this book helpful.
