Photography and the outdoors could have been made for each other. This book has been produced for outdoor enthusiasts who want their photographs to do full justice to the quality of their outdoor experience.
A central theme is that `point and shoot is a state of mind`. It`s not what camera you have but how you use it that really counts. And how you use it depends first on seeing, and on knowing what you want your pictures to convey. There is still a place for technique, and essential technical concepts are introduced and explained in the clearest possible language, and with a sense of humour.
Throughout the book the emphasis is on practical advice, and on integrating photography with the rest of your outdoor life. There are chapters on landscape, action, and wildlife and close-up photography. Throughout the book the text and illustrations are related specifically to climbing, cycling, caving, and many other activities. Particular advice is given for compact camera users.
The book is illustrated with over 100 colour photographs, chosen both to illustrate learning points and to provide inspiration.
