Digital image capture and post-processing has totally transformed the art of landscape photography. The days of being restricted to the results made in-camera are long gone – we are now presented with a seemingly boundless array of processing options. The goal of this in-depth new eBook is to demystify the digital landscape photography workflow. Found here: Loving Landscapes

“The section on how to merge the best elements of multiple exposures as an alternative to traditional HDR is invaluable, being aware of and understanding these possibilities is critical for getting the most out of each landscape you are faced with.” -Richard Schneider

We photographers have the ability to tweak, morph, weld together and generally torture our pixels with reckless abandon – these are truly golden times for landscape and nature photographers!

If there is a downside to all this digital possibility it is that there are simply too many possibilities – the complexity of many advanced digital post-processing techniques are simply off the chart and the full workflow from capture to output is bewildering for beginners.

The goal of this book is to demystify the digital landscape photography workflow by sharing almost every landscape photography technique, trick and hack that we have accumulated over the past 20 years of photographing nature together. We will start out in ‘the field’ and take you step-by- step through download, archiving, image selection and post- processing.

“A good landscape photography workflow nurtures and supports your creative instincts while equipping you with the tools to work around obstacles – both in the field and in the studio. I view complex workflow techniques as a means to an end and I only resort to them when simple strategies are failing to deliver the desired results.” -Author Todd Sisson
