Michael Frye — Digital Landscape Photography: In the Footsteps of Ansel Adams and the Great Masters — Focal Press, 2010, ISBN 978-0-240-81243-4
(This is off-topic for this blog, but you may know that photography is one of my hobbies.)
Frye presents various techniques to create great landscape photography in a spirit inspired by the great masters, in particular Ansel Adams. He discusses many technical aspects, such as the zone system, but focusses on composition and on the ever elusive nature of light: is light too hard? is it soft? warm? Does the light produce the right constrasts? Are the shadows interesting? Are the bright regions in the right places?
Of course, most of the images used in the book are breathtaking!
