Book publisher Rocky Nook has released “Mastering Landscape Photography: The Luminous Landscape Essays” consisting of thirteen essays on landscape photography by master photographer Alain Briot.
The book begins with the technical aspects of photography: how to see, compose, find the right light, and select the best lens for a specific shot. Then it continues by focusing on the artistic aspects of photography with chapters on how to select your best work, how to create a portfolio, and finally concludes with two chapters on how to be an artist in business.
Author Alain Briot, originally of Paris, France, is one of today’s leading contemporary landscape photographers. He studied drawing and oil painting in the Academie Nationale des Beaux Arts in Paris and began his photography career in 1980. He now lives in Arizona and writes for the Luminous Landscape website.
