Digital Outdoor Photography - 101 Top Tips by Heather Angel

Digital Outdoor Photography: 101 Top Tips by Heather Angel

Sterling Publishing recently sent me a copy of Heather Angel’s latest book, Digital Outdoor Photography: 101 Top Tips. Heather Angel is British nature photographer that has been been authoring nature photography books for many years. I had read some of her books when I was first starting off my photography career so I was somewhat familiar with her work prior to receiving the book for review.

The book is geared toward aspiring nature photographers. The format is a bit different than most other photo books in the how-to genre in that the content is presented as a series of essential tips for nature photographers. The tips are concise and well-illustrated, which I believe is designed to help photographers remember the material easier. Topics from light and shadow, to shooting in the rain, to blending into surroundings is covered. There are a few tips about the basics of camera operation such as metering, but the majority of the book is specific to nature photography. This is a good thing because let’s be honest, there are already a million books out there that tell you how to install your camera batteries, how to do spot metering, etc…

I think the people that can best benefit from this book are probably photographers that know the basic fundamentals of how to make an exposure, and understand the difference between f2, f5.6 and f16. But perhaps don’t have significant experience with outdoor photography. If you’re a photographer that falls into this category, you would probably get a lot of ideas for what can be done in nature photography. The book is not going to make you the next Frans Lanting or Heather Angel, no book can, but it can be a launching point for you to try some things you may not have considered before.

For more info, see the publisher’s website or Amazon.com if you’re interested in purchasing the book.
