He has written and photographed many books and magazine articles but what is most important to him about them is knowing that he has helped people become better photographers and gain a better connection to nature.

Nature photography isn't as easy as it looks. It requires a great deal of thought and more than a little skill. Rob Sheppard put a great deal of thought into this book, and his advice helps you attain the required skills. The photos are inspiring, and the techniques can be applied to virtually any digital camera. This is a book that will help you grow as a photographer, whether you choose to specialize in nature photography or not.

Rather than providing ideas of what to photograph, Sheppard presents invaluable insider techniques and insights: use a histogram to get the ideal exposure, or white balance to create atmospheric images.

First the spiritual: Sheppard believes that ‘nature photography definitely deepens, widens and expands our sense of life. He believes you can shoot pictures of your favourite subjects; most times you can shoot many shots of your favourite subjects and yet capture totally different images than another person may take. A touchy feely sort of book? You betcha! In a chapter titled ‘Connections’ Sheppard asserts that whilst we may have many connections to the natural world, these are not always recognised.

Like many photography books, this book really is only somewhat informative, and somewhat helpful.

After a brief overview of gear, the author goes on to describe, (very briefly) exposure, lighting, color, composition, etc...Never really spending any significant amount of time on any one subject, and only providing a few photographic details for each topic covered.

For example, the author spends a page or two describing lighting (backlighting, sidelighting, etc), but fails to show any pictorial examples that would give the reader a visual example.

While this book has many, many great pictures none of the pictures are accompanied by a description of the camera settings. This is the information that would prove most useful to any aspiring photographer.

In the end, this book really did very little to further my photography skills.

I have read/studied this terrific guide. I am a beginner and going beyond point and shoot. My primary interest is nature photography. This book has provided instruction and tips that have improved my hobby. I like a book better than YouTube because I can make notes in it, dog-ear pages to mark them, toss it in the car referral of to re-read during down time.

Great book. Lots of good tips on taking good photos . Great pictures showing "how to" make yours look better. Highly recommend this book to other photo enthusiasts. Book arrived on time and was well packaged. Good pricing too. Ellen P.

At first glance, the book is amazing. It is very well written with all sorts of useful advice. It is useful for a beginner, but he never sounds as if he is talking down to anyone. It has plenty of more technical advice for the more advanced, but it never becomes overwhelming. And the photos are simply amazing.

But... I do have one problem with the book, and it is fairly glaring to me. As amazing as the photos are, the author makes little to no attempt to tie them into the text. There is no attempt to use the photos as a way to explain difficult or confusing topics. It is almost like the author wrote the entire book and then simply added a bunch of photos randomly throughout the text. Photographers by nature are visual learners. It would have been much more helpful if the author had use the photos to teach us and let the text add the details instead of relying so heavily on the text itself.

The end result is that many times the beautiful photos seem more of a distraction than helpful examples. This book is very good, but it easily could have been so much better.

This book was great in helping me go out and experiment with other settings and angles in taking landscape pictures

I gave 4 stars because a beginner will not understand some of the terms used in the book.

I would recommend this book to any photographer who needs to be inspired to try different things when taking landscape pictures.

If you are looking for a helpful book on nature photography, keep looking. This book's focus is not on technique (or even nature photography) but mostly on gear and simplistic ABCs.

55% of the book is photos. None of the photos give detail of how it was shot or any twist on a technique used. This drops the page count from 207 pages to 93 functional pages. The first 61 pages offer nothing different than that of a camera's manual on shutter speed, white balance, etc. More wasted space is used on "gear" about tripods and cameras. Doing the math, we are now down to 66 pages. This process continues to where we have just a few pages that may offer some value.

Much of the remaining reduction comes in wasted space on "gear" which Sheppard rehashes multiple times. This book's only purpose would be to get someone not the slightest interested in photography to perhaps spark an interest. For any photographer at any level, the book offers nothing than what you find on camera manufacturer websites and manuals inside camera boxes. It is so basic that even beginners would be hard pressed to learn much. In the end, you are left wondering where the pages are about nature photography. Look elsewhere in Amazon for more suitable photography books.
This was another book they had us buy for our photography class and it was also good but not my favorite of the ones we had to buy but a very good book
