Counter What makes a nature photograph beautiful? It may surprise you, but the most crucial element is you, the photographer. Your skills give each picture that intangible quality that distinguishes a great from an ordinary photo. When you take your camera in hand and head outdoors, have the knowledge you need to shoot a spectacular image. From composition (observing the landscape, finding the viewpoint, isolating the subject) to technical considerations (selecting a lens, choosing a shutter speed, expressing movement), you'll discover dozens of photographic tips and tricks here, along with dozens of inspirational examples. Make the most of light--including shadows--and color (especially at sunset). Work in the city, focusing on buildings, or in the deepest woods. Express the season, overcome problems such as bad weather and mist, and pinpoint the best opportunities for success!
