About the Author

He was the editor of Outdoor Photographer magazine for 12 years and was the original editor of PCPhoto (now Digital Photo). He still writes regularly for Outdoor Photographer and teaches popular workshops around the country. See his work and photo tips at robshepppardphoto.com, and his blog at natureandphotography.com.

More About the Author

I am proud of the work I have done as a photographer, author, naturalist and nature photographer, editor and videographer. I love the natural world, and that can be a native bee in my native plants garden as much as a visit to a national park. I am a husband of a beautiful and smart wife, a father to my outstanding son and daughter, and one who lived in Minnesota most of my life, but now loves the variety and very long growing season of Southern California.

I have written and photographed a lot of books and magazine articles but what is most important to me about them is knowing that I have helped people become better photographers and gain a better connection to nature. I work to help people connect with photography and nature through speaking and as a workshop leader, too. All of this has gained me a Fellow award with the North American Nature Photography Association. Many people knew me as the long-time editor of Outdoor Photographer magazine and I am still connected with them as a contributing editor.

A short list of some of the books I have done: Landscape Photography: From Snapshot to Great Shot, Magic of Digital Landscape Photography, The Magic of Digital Nature Photography, National Geographic Field Guide to Digital Photography, The Power of Black-and-White in Nature Photography and Reports from the Field (an iBook).

I try to read all of Rob Sheppard's books. I find him to be a very approachable author. By that, I mean he does not make me feel like I have to spend thousands of dollars to get a decent picture. One of the best parts of this book is the description of his gear. While I often read books and blogs where the author recommends I spend a mint, Rob Sheppard's gear is so humble it really makes photography seem more a product of the photographer than his wallet. He also knows what he is talking about in terms of getting good landscape photographs. This is the first book I have read in this 'Snapshot to Great Shot' series and I am sure I will read a few more. The wildlife and exposure editions seem like they will be interesting to me. I like the format with an image or two closely analyzed as an example of each topic. So, I recommend this book highly and, if you like it, find and read more of Rob Sheppard's work.

I took a number of classes at Hennepin Technical Institute from Rob Sheppard when he was in Minnesota and loved his instructional method. This book furthers his wonderful instructional ability, being easy to understand and relate to in my own world. It is a refresher and new learning experience. Love the 'assignments' at the end of each chapter. Great book.

No matter the experience level, there's always something you can learn, and that's true here too. Straightforward, brief, but good insights, the illustrations are captioned with settings info and his discussion of white balance and HDR are important for anyone who is either uncomfortable, or unfamiliar with, either subject. Not a pro level guide certainly, but useful information for those who want to improve their landscape photography.

I'm re-reading this book again. Its both a refresher and a reference. It presents the material in non-techie language. The examples are real-world with lots of tips of what to look for and how to deal with what you find - all in simple to understand descriptions. This is one of only a few books that I"m very happy I purchased. Its one of my PRIMARY guides as I hopefully continue to improve my photography hobby! (I have already recommended this book to several others.)

This is a good book for the beginner. It covers the basics quite well. I agree with practically everything in the book. However, I learned very little. I have done a fair amount of landscape photography and was hoping for some new insights.

good source of ideas on how to improve your landscape photos, but really could have been a simple check list, but the photos were great to study.

Great read with some wonderful tips for good landscapes. The added chapter on processing hit just enough without going too deep.
