About this book

The problems facing the photographer in the great outdoors are special. Even highly-skilled photographers are often baffled by them. In this revised and updated version of his 1984 book, The Nature Photographer's Complete Guide to Professional Field Techniques, noted wildlife and scenic photographer John Shaw draws on his own many years in the field to demonstrate how to overcome these problems and get not just good but great nature pictures.

Covering every problem you might encounter in the field, Shaw offers his own approach to the challenges of on-the-spot nature photography. Using his own colour images as examples, he discusses each type of subject and situation you may encounter, while offering specific advice and techniques on how to successfully photograph it. A wide range of topics are covered, including equipment, lenses, composition, close-ups, and professional tips.
