The Landscape Photography Book: The step-by-step techniques you need to capture breathtaking landscape photos like the pros ()
Have you ever dreamed of taking such incredible landscape photos that your friends and family say, “Wait a minute, this is your photo?! You took this?” Well, you’re in luck. Right here, in this book, pro photographer and award-winning author Scott Kelby teaches you how to shoot and edit jaw-dropping landscape photographs.
Dusk to Dawn: A Guide to Landscape Photography at Night (2018)
In the past, landscape photography largely ended when the last light of dusk faded from the sky. Today it’s only beginning. The latest digital cameras have made it easy to create images of the landscape at night that film and early digital photographers could only dream of.
The Art of Landscape Photography (2015)
There are many general titles on landscape photography, but few that really tackle the issue of composition in great depth. This guide assumes a good working knowledge of the technical basics—such as correct exposure, filtration, and sharpness—and concentrates on the "heart and soul" of landscape photography: the principles of composition and aesthetic design to convey meaning and emotion.
Mastering Landscape Photography (2015)
Landscape photography can be a solitary experience, but award-winning landscape photographer David Taylor believes creativity requires a certain amount of peaceful contemplation to flourish. What skills or requirements, therefore, does a successful landscape photographer need?
The New Art of Photographing Nature: An Updated Guide to Composing Stunning Images of Animals, Nature, and Landscapes (2013)

Wide-Angle Photography: Capturing Landscape, Portrait, Street, and Architectural Photographs with Wide-Angle Lenses (Including Tilt-Shift Lenses) (2018)
The very thing that makes wide-angle photography so compelling also makes it a challenge: While you’re sure to capture a vast scene using a wide-angle lens, it can be difficult to direct the viewer’s attention when so many elements are included in an image. For many photographers, the results of their wide-angle attempts are a disappointment and they just can’t seem to achieve that “Wow” they are hoping for in their images.
Todd Hido on Landscapes, Interiors, and the Nude: The Photography Workshop Series (2014)
In The Photography Workshop Series, Aperture Foundation works with the world’s top photographers to distill their creative approaches, teachings and insights on photography, offering the workshop experience in a book. Its goal is to inspire photographers of all levels who wish to improve their work, as well as readers interested in deepening their understanding of the art of photography.

Two leading landscape photographers come together to share their wealth of experience and teaching skills in this new title.

Landscape essentials, such as composition and filtration, are covered in depth and explained in a precise yet easy-to-understand manner.
Expressive Nature Photography: Design, Composition, and Color in Outdoor Imagery (2017)
Photographer and teacher Brenda Tharp marries photography craft with artistic vision to help intermediate photographers translate what they see into a personal impression of a subject in nature. Using single images, along with before-and-after and with-or-without examples, Expressive Nature Photography teaches how to make exposures that are creative, not necessarily correct.
