Overview

From camera-wielding adventurers to soccer moms, photographers at all levels will add new excitement and energy to their camerawork when they focus in on the advice, tips, and techniques revealed and explained in this essential field guide by one of the world's finest adventure photographers. Bill Hatcher shares all the experience and expertise he's acquired in twenty years of capturing split-second adventure, fast-moving drama, and quiet moments on the side.

Combining invaluable know-how with 115 inspiring and spectacular examples of his work, Hatcher shows exactly how to transform mood and movement into stunning images that distill the essence of action and setting. He demonstrates how to freeze a crystalline moment of maximum intensity, how to blur a shot into a powerful portrait of pure speed, and even how to spot and seize fleeting glimpses of special stillness and beauty.

The book discusses equipment, technique, and composition, from preparation to final print, and covers both traditional film and the latest, ever-more-popular digital gear. Filled with key information and helpful hints, it's designed to appeal to the broadest possible range of skill and will add new dimensions to action photographs of all kinds, from a child's first wobbly bike ride across the backyard to a climber's last weary but triumphant steps onto a Himalayan peak.
