Overview

Featuring compelling images created by more than 35 of the world's best nature photographers including such visionaries as John Sexton and Jim Zuckerman, this book is packed with stunning examples of wildlife portraiture, fine art landscape images, and botanical and insect close-ups. Photographers learn the secrets behind creating images such as those found in Audubon and U.S. News & World Report directly from the photographers who risked their equipment, personal safety, and in some cases, their lives, to produce these first-rate images. With tips on choosing a camera, selecting aperture and shutter speed, reading natural light, and using filters, each photographer discusses his or her own favorite technique, equipment, and compositional strategies and reveals how to achieve unique, evocative images that truly tell a story.
