Amateur digital photographers are now finding that advances in camera technology and portability are bringing professional results within their reach. The Field Guide series puts professional know-how into their pockets: these are focused, needs-oriented books aimed at giving even the most novice photographer confidence when shooting, and all the relevant expertise in post-production. The selected topics have difficult locations and unpredictable subjects in common: any wedding, wildlife, or landscape photographer needs to know when to seize the moment, and how to prepare to ensure that it isn’t missed. They need to have the right equipment to hand, but also be ready to react to the unexpected; they need to be able to compose a shot on the fly, and anticipate opportunities. The Field Guides are packed with ideas and sound advice, gleaned from professionals with years of experience in the field. Subjects covered in each volume include preparation for trips, strategies and techniques for capturing key moments before they pass, perfecting shots in the digital darkroom, and displaying images in print and online. Each series author is a well-known professional; their own shots, supplemented with other photographers’ work, will inspire the reader to make immediate steps forward in their own craft.
