Secrets of Nature Photography

Outdoor photography presents a unique set of challenges for photographers. This book profiles 60 of the author's own images to teach the craft of nature photography. Tips are given on identifying the best subjects for a photograph-be it a flower, landscape, or wildlife.

Photographers learn to work in natural light, evaluate how light effects work best with specific subjects, what weather conditions, and which times of day yield the best light. Picking the right equipment-lenses, tripods, lights, cameras, and filters-is also discussed.

Judy Holmes has a craftsman degree from the Professional Photographers of America.
