  • Personal stories of growing up in a professional photographic family
  • Methods used in creating his landscape and sports images
  • Stories about chasing down spectacular light
  • Methods for his works in progress

In Part 2 of the book Mark takes you through the technical procedures he uses to:

  • Capture and process a digital image
  • Blend images together into HDR scenes
  • Optimize color digital files
  • Get the most out of Adobe Bridge and Lightroom
