Digital Landscape Photography

In the Footsteps of Ansel Adams and the Great Masters

By Michael Frye

  • Paperback
  • £16.99

Ansel Adams was a hugely innovative photographer, and his resulting works are masterpieces. You can apply the same ideas to your digital photography.

Updated, expanded, and covering the latest software, this new edition of the bestselling Digital Landscape Photography brings the amazing techniques pioneered by Ansel Adams and his contemporaries to every digital photographer.

Ansel Adams' imagery - especially his iconic vision of the American National Parks - is widely published and instantly recognisable. Many photographers will have heard of his renowned Zone System, but that is just the tip of the iceberg; his unparalleled attention to detail, which once required hours in the darkroom with specialist tools, is finally accessible to all.

Michael Frye's own photography provides many stunning examples of the results that can be achieved, and as one of Adams' natural successors in the field, he is well placed to analyse the many inspirational shots from the great masters of landscape photography. Combining the cutting edge of today's digital work with some of the best-known photos ever taken, this book a must-read for any landscape or nature photographer.

[Frye's] images are accomplished and he has captured the spirit of Yosemite, its unpredictable and dramatic weather and light very well. He uses his images and those of Ansel Adams and Eliot Porter to great effect to illustrate his lessons in improving our digital images. The book is peppered with quotes from these renowned image makers and he draws on many of their techniques.

Christie Goodwin, John Sheeran

A stunning collection of rare and unseen photographs and stories charting Ed Sheeran's rise to global superstar, by long-time collaborator Christie Goodwin.Featuring a foreword and additional photo captions by Ed's father, John Sheeran."When I first met Ed Sheeran he was unknown and unsigned - just a young busker trying to make it big. But I could see something special in Ed. I agreed to photograph him for free to help him on his way to the top. That was the beginning of a 10-year collaboration, with the two of us crossing paths as Ed became one of the biggest stars on the planet - a story told here, through my camera. Including images and stories I'm sharing for the first time, with additional captions by Ed's father John, this is an up-close and intimate view of Ed Sheeran."Christie Goodwin
