Main / Book Reviews: Light and the Art of Landscape Photography
This is not your typical photography text or how-to book. It's more like sitting at the light table with a seasoned pro while he pulls out favorite chromes and tells the stories behind each shot. And like each such session that I've participated in I learned a few things reading through Joe Cornish's book - both from the success he's had and the mistakes he's made.
In many instances he shows two images of the same location where he's returned to reshoot a landscape. There are differences in light and composition. Sometimes they're noticeable, sometimes subtle. Cornish reveals the thought process behind how these images were made as well as the technical details. But as is so often the case, it is the process behind the photos that is truly illuminating. Beginners will appreciate this book for it's strong visual appeal but seasoned photographers will take more away from it.
This is one of those rare books that is impossible to read without provoking a strong desire to grab your cameras and head out to create images of your own.
