It is such a fundamental a concept, yet is missing from nearly all good books.

First, let me begin by stating that I have found the Wiley Photo Workshop series to be among the best resources for learning and re-learning about the art of photography. As a high school photography teacher, I used Composition Photo Workshop as a basic text for my students. With each subsequent release, the publishers have maintained the same structural format and have adhered to a higher level of standard then you find in most photography "How-to" books.

This newest addition is no exception. The first thing that got my attention was the amazing images found throughout the book. I often find myself disappointed by those who write books on photography who seem to illustrate a specific point with a terrible image. That is not the case with this book. Each image is well selected and many added to demonstrate the simplest point leave you with that "I wish I had taken that picture" feeling.

If you've been doing this for a while don't be put put off by the "basic" nature of some of the chapter headings. As stated by the author, "Photography is a never ending process and a personal journey with no destination." If you believe this statement, as I do, then this book will offer new insights no matter what your level of experience.

If it is your desire to move beyond taking snapshots of nature and create a sense of awe in the natural images you create, than this book is a wonderful foundation. If, on the other hand, you are a seasoned veteran whose works have inspired others than I guarantee you will take away many insights. Some may be new and others just simply forgotten. In any case, this book is that rare edition to the literature which bridges the gap between amateur and professional-leaving you with the knowledge you have truly learned something that has enhanced your personal journey.

Format: Paperback
Nat Coalson, has recently released an outstanding book on nature photography, "Nature Photography - Photo Workshop". My photo library contains most books published on the subject of nature photography and the one book I've always recommended beginners start with is John Shaw's classic "Nature Photography Field Guide". However, my recommendation has changed and here's why. Coalson's book provides an insight far beyond the sheer technical skills and normal compositional guidelines. This is a true "workshop" with periodic exercises for the serious student of nature photography. He starts off by "awaking" to nature photography and "learning to see" visually. He then covers the important topics of working with natural light and composing. He reviews the latest in digital photo gear as well as setting up a processing workflow to enhance your images using Lightroom and Photoshop. Topics including grand scenics, intimate landscapes and black and white conversions are covered thoroughly. Finally, the last chapter covers how to continually improve your skills through nurturing creativity, developing a personal style and honing your technical skills. This is by far the most useful and complete treatise on nature photography yet printed and I highly recommend picking up a copy.

I purchased this book because I was impressed with Mr. Coalson's Lightroom book, and I was not disappointed. This is a serious instructional manual for those who are serious about improving their photography. There are no "magic settings", but well thought out explanations of basic principles, exercises that reinforce the concepts and plenty of first-rate examples. This is a book that you can come back to many times and find something to take away with every reading. Highly recommended.

I have quite a few books on photography, some specialize in different subjects, and some are more complete in coverage. This is the latter, and honestly the best reading of all the books in my library. Not too wordy, to the point in easy to understand language, great example photographs and every chapter ends with an assignment. There is also a website if you want to participate where you can post your work for evaluation.
I would recommend this to a beginner to intermediate enthusiast.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Palisades Reader on September 3, 2011
Format: Paperback
Nat Coalson's Nature Photography is a wonderful book and great road map to learning and keeping up with photographic techniques. This is not your typical "How To" photography book. Each of the chapters has its own subject matter and the author leads us through the "why's" and "how tos" in a very clear and succinct manner. He has wonderful examples, along with images containing details of how they were taken. What I also really like is the assignment at the end of each chapter, so one can take the information and experiment with the assignment given. In a way, it is almost better than being on an actual workshop, as you can work at your own pace and work on what ever intrigues you at that moment. The book also contains many great tips and references to keep you going for a long while.

Format: Paperback
Rarely do I pick up a book that can be regarded as inspirational as this. I have read and referred to many photography books in my time that I class as being merely good. However when I opened Nat's book It was a revelation. The book starts by describing how humans see things and the difference with what the camera see's. It is such a fundamental a concept, yet is missing from nearly all good books. Nat walks you through how the eye scans a photo and all of the important attributes that build up great nature photos. It covers so much of what most photographers often overlook in an easy and step by step format that it made me realise how much I did not know. It is written in a clear, easy to understand style with superb example photos that are themselves stimulating. This book is a work of art in every way and will change your approach to photography. I wish Nat would write a book on wedding and group photography with posing guidance. Genius.
