The authors of Developing Vision and Style are three of Britain's most respected landscape photographers; in this book they have combined forces to share their wide-ranging experience and expertise with those who aspire, as they do, to create images that reflect their own visions of a chosen landscape and which have a distinctive personal style. Alongside a portfolio of their latest work, each of the three authors writes about the genre for which they are so well-known: how they came to it, what inspires them, how each developed his own particular style. The book also features photographs submitted in response to an invitation to participants in Light Land workshops and readers of Outdoor Photography magazine accompanied by comments, critiques and advice from the three authors who suggest ways in which these contributors might further develop and refine their work. The combination of stunning imagery with inspirational and insightful three-to-one advice makes Light Land a truly unique experience, which no landscape enthusiast will want to do without. This is the second book in the Light Land' series.
