The Essentials of Nature Photography

by Milton Heiberg

As wetlands and rainforests get swept under the pavement, there is an increasing need and desire to photograph the parcels of nature that we have left. Creating and publicly displaying beautiful photo images of the natural world informs and inspires us toward the preservation of these parcels, and helps promote a public awareness of how vital the earth's natural environment is to our own existence. In The Essentials of Nature Photography author Milton Heiberg, a thirty-year veteran of the discipline, gives expert instruction on how to make excellent nature photographs, and does it with both reverence for nature and a sense of humor.

The Essentials of Nature Photography follows the general format of the course outline that the author has used in his classes at the New York City Audubon Societyand the Crealdé School of Art, Orlando, FL, since 1981.

Some of the topics covered are:

- Landscapes: Composition, form, lighting, weather. . .

- Telephoto: Action shots with autofocus cameras, wild animals, captives, flying birds. . .

- Macrophotography: Theory & technique with wildflowers and insects...

- Digital manipulation: Retouching, creativity vs truth in nature, and ethics & honesty. . .

- Organization and presentation: Portfolios, interviews, slide shows, storage and record keeping. . .

This book is meant to be read and used as a reference by any photographer, novice or professional, who wants to improve his or her nature photography skills. The emphasis is on nature, and includes everything one needs to know about practical technique, theory, ethics, and philosophy of nature photography.

Probably the best handbook of nature photography ever written.
