Called a "master lensman" (Bird Watching) and "one of the world's leading bird photographers" (Outdoor Photography), Bill Coster has become an authoritative source for instructional photographic guides. After the success of his first guide, Creative Bird Photography, he returns with a gorgeously illustrated, inspirational guide to nature photography that is packed with practical advice and presented in his characteristic informative but accessible writing style.
In Creative Nature Photography, Coster takes a fresh approach to the subject. He discusses the world's key habitats—from coasts and mountains to arid and polar regions—in separate chapters, each containing images of specific aspects of the environment, starting with landscapes and moving on to plants and animals. Each photograph demonstrates particular points and approaches, taking into account light conditions, terrain, and the general surroundings.
Fascinating anecdotes about Coster's experiences in each habitat bring the images to life. Each photograph is accompanied by detailed technical data, as well as information about locations and other issues that need to be tackled to achieve the perfect shot. There is also an up-to-date chapter on photography basics, including equipment such as cameras and lenses.
