Photography and the outdoors could have been made for each other. This book is about making the most of that connection. Outdoor enthusiasts who want their photographs to do full justice to the quality of their outdoor experiences need look no further. Building on the foundations of the original Cicerone guide to outdoor photography, this second edition has been rewritten from the ground up, and expanded to cover a wide range of outdoor activities on land, in and on the water, in the air and in extreme environments. Fully up-to-date with the latest digital developments, it is naturally illustrated with a host of stunning images. Professional outdoor photographers Jon Sparks and Chiz Dakin introduce and explain essential technical concepts in the clearest possible language. The emphasis is on practical, realistic advice for people who want to take better photographs of what they like doing best, while still enjoying it to the max.
Jon Sparks has been a full-time photographer since a 6-week trek in the Karakoram Mountains of Pakistan in 1990 convinced him that his passion from childhood should become his career. His name is now on almost 30 books, including guides to every current Nikon digital SLR. Jon is a member of the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild. Chiz Dakin, winner of the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild Award for Excellence in Photography in 20089, is passionate about travelling and the outdoors. She is keen on mountain walking, scrambling and cycling and has visited all seven continents. Wherever she goes she always ensures she has her camera with her.
