"Art Wolfe's photographs are magically composed and stunningly beautiful." - Edward O. Wilson

Présentation de l'éditeur

A new spin on the classic guide to composing stunning images of nature and wildlife
What is the difference between a good picture and a great one? In this fully revised edition of the classic bestseller The Art of Photographing Nature, master photographer Art Wolfe and former Audubon photo editor Martha Hill team up to explain the art of composing images of enduring beauty. Against a backdrop of more than 250 photographs of nature, wildlife, and landscapes, they share insights and advice about what works and what doesn’t, and how small changes can take an image from ordinary to extraordinary. Throughout, all-new tips from digital imaging expert Tim Grey show readers how to make the most of digital technology, whether by choosing the right color space, understanding sensor size, or removing distracting elements in post-processing. The result is an invaluable collection of expert advice updated for the modern age.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Update to a classic text 27 mai 2013
Par Alan Shi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
As far as books on composition go, this is among one of the better books you'll find. I really enjoyed the first version of this book, and the good parts are definitely preserved in this new release. The unique format of this book, where much of the text contains commentary from Wolfe and Hill about specific photographs is where this book really shines. As a former editor of Audubon magazine, Hill's comments can be particularly insightful. Wolfe's photographs are, of course, excellent, and the great print quality of the images allow you to really appreciate their beauty. As for the parts of the book that were updated to contain technical information on digital imaging, these sections were unremarkable, and frankly did not really fit the theme of a book whose primary purpose is to discuss aesthetic concerns.

The first six chapters cover classic concepts on composition. You'll learn about isolating the subject, framing, perspective, colour, design, and light in the classic 'conversational' format between Wolfe and Hill. This is what I really enjoyed about the first version of this book. Having had time to reflect a bit on this, and having read many more photography books since I read the original, I can say that while on the whole, this format can be very instructive, it is not always so. The most instructive bits are when Wolfe and Hill discuss the *creative* aspects and decisions that really make the image work. However, there are some images where the commentary is about background information on the subject, or some vague generalities of what the image communicates, without specifically addressing how that is done. Those parts are interesting, but not particularly instructive.

Chapter 7 deals with creative options, such as depth of field, shutter speed, and filters. This is pretty standard technical information that may be interesting to the beginner, but is fairly average in terms of content. I'd recommend dedicated books on this topic instead of this one if technical concerns are your primary interest.

The last three chapters are new to this update, and are written by Wolfe, Hill, and Grey individually. Wolfe's chapter contains an set of tips and advice on nature photography, and a short section on the equipment he uses. Hill discusses telling a story through photography, and gives you insight into how selections are made for publication. The last chapter from Grey contains basic digital imaging tips (raw vs. jpg; exposing to the right; etc), and as with chapter 7, is fairly unremarkable.

While the addition of tips for digital imaging may be appealing to some (particularly newer photographers), I would say on the whole, if this is something you are interested in, the original version of this book, combined with other dedicated books on the technical aspects will serve you better than just this single book. It's not that the technical sections of this book are bad; it's that they are fairly shallow, and you either probably already know this information, or else you will be someone who could really benefit from greater detail that one this book will provide. However, for examples and instruction on composition this book is still very good, and the unique perspective from Hill is something you won't see from other books on composition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Still a Great Book 2 avril 2013
Par Conrad J. Obregon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Art Wolfe is one of the most famous living nature photographers, and certainly is amongst the best. Any thoughtful explanation of how he composes his work is almost certain to be worthy of consideration by other nature photographers.

In this book, together with former National Audubon photography editor Martha Hill and digital processing guru Tim Grey, Wolfe offers his thoughts on capturing nature images. The chapters talk about isolating the subject, composition, perspective, color, design, light, and considerations like depth of field, shutter speed and filters. The final chapters deal with some varied thoughts from Wolfe, Hill and Grey. The book is illustrated with Wolfe's photographs. I particularly enjoyed those sets of images where the photos illustrated how technique could be applied to the same subject to make a better photograph. There are brief discussions of the teaching points of each set of images, first from Wolfe's perspective as the photographer and then from Hill's perspective as a photo editor. I particularly liked when they disagreed as to which image in a set was the better. Grey's comments on digital techniques are sprinkled throughout the book but they are less related to individual photographs then Wolfe's or Hill's.

This book is an update of "The Art of Photographing Nature", a book which I have always respected and praised. It's been completely rewritten to reflect the shift from film to digital, and while many of the older pictures are still used to illustrate particular points, there are plenty of new digital images as well.

There is little discussion of basic techniques like focus or exposure and yet it is clear that the book is aimed at beginners. On the other hand, I found that it provided the kind of review, particularly given the high quality of the images, that could benefit more experienced hands.

Grey's comments seemed like a useful but unnecessary add-on for the digital age, designed to update the book. Although they usually presented useful information to the new digital photographer, they don't provide a comprehensive general approach to the digital aspects of image capture. For example, the tips in Grey's wrap up chapter cover points like shoot raw over JPEG, expose to the right, and use the lowest ISO possible. While useful tips, a beginner will need to review a basic book on digital shooting to develop a comprehensive approach.

This book is not designed to provide a complete approach to nature photography, but as an approach to composition, the book is right on the mark.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful book for all types of photography, not only nature 1 décembre 2013
Par Mary Jane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
As others have commented, an essential book after having mastered the (unnecessarily complex) settings of our cameras. The tone of the book is informative, light and conversational, making it very easy to read. The concepts contained however are numerous and important, and for beginners my advice is to put down the book every couple of paragraphs, and practice with the camera. We learn only when we see it in our own pictures!

My personal nit picking is not enjoying reading for the nth time that shooting in bright sunlight is a no-no. It is challenging that's for sure, but when we keep the sun on our back and shoot midtones (saturated red, green, blue) while avoiding darks/pastels/faded/muted colors, we get gorgeous colors (albeit with front light our image will look flatter than with sidelight). I read in a Navy photography manual that hard light (the sun) makes strong colors turn stronger, and weak colors turn weaker. I agree.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good examples 13 avril 2013

Most photos show 2 or 3 examples allowing the reader to see his improvements on one photo to the next
of each subject. The exposure is listed for all photos however I believe that data may not be correct which is usual in photo books. For example many exposures on sunny days are way off sunny 16. The book is still very helpful.
The comparisons of 2 or 3 photos for each subject is the real value here.

An excellent guide and commentary on selected pictures complete with examples, cultural & photo-art references. You get both views for each picture: photographers view and art critic view. Very inspirational. Warmly recommended.
