He really knows how to convey information in an easy way and often with a great sense of humor.

His new book handles the subject matter well and is certainly a good book for beginners as well as a good review for old photographers like me.

I have one of Norton's earlier books, the Art of Outdoor Photography which I consider one of the best in the past several years.

Format: Paperback
These are difficult times ot produce books on this topic. With the ever changing world of digital and updates in software, who can keep up? Fortunately this book is written so that the basic needs are met as well as some very sound fundamentals can be established for the new photographer and those making the difficult transisiton from film to digital. Great job on the basics and combining this with the art side as well.

If you are looking for some specific method for removing things from a scene and making major alterations, this is not the book for you. But, if you are striving to improve your images and maintain truthfulness to the image, then this is one great book.

A few years ago I got his "Art of Outdoor Photography" which I consider one of the best for either film shooters or digital shooters. This new one on just digital photography is equally good. He really knows how to convey information in an easy way and often with a great sense of humor. The layout and design of this book is really good. If I have any criticism its that some of the pictures might have been made larger on the page. All in all I highly recommend it.

As with Boyd's first book, this one is also quite good. It was Boyd's First book that help me take a large step forward in photography and to really enjoy nature work. His new book handles the subject matter well and is certainly a good book for beginners as well as a good review for old photographers like me.

I have one of Norton's earlier books, the Art of Outdoor Photography which I consider one of the best in the past several years. This new one has been a big help to me in getting started in digital shooting - especially in making extended trips in remote places. As in his other book, he has a great writing style.

More About the Author

I once blew up a nuclear reactor. Deliberately. It's true. On November 5, 1962 I sat at the controls of a reactor, operated by remote control from a half mile away, and ran the ultimate super prompt-critical power excursion that blew apart the core. See my blog for a video of that event. (http://thewildernessphotography.blogspot.com) This is the subject of one of two memoirs I have underway.

After I made my getaway, I began free-lancing as a photographer and writer, specializing in wilderness, wildlife and adventure travel. I'm the author of 16 books ranging in topics from African elephants to mountain gorillas, from Siberia's Lake Baikal to the Serengeti ecosystem, Alaskan wilderness - and more. I've been an environmental activist for over 45 years.

I'm honored to be chosen as "One of the 40 most influential nature photographers from around the globe" by Outdoor Photography Magazine U.K. I once received an award from Robert Redford on behalf of the Environmental Protection Agency for my "important, exciting environmental photography and writing." Thanks Bob.

Recently I've organized opposition to the proposed commercial highway that would cut across Serengeti National Park and perhaps destroy the greatest animal migration on earth. I'm co-founder and co-director of Serengeti Watch (savetheserengeti.org).

My newest book, "Serengeti: The Eternal Beginning" will be released in October 2011. Pre-orders available here on Amazon. Pre-publication comments have been great, from Ed Begley Jr., actor and eco-activist to Joe McGinniss author of "Fatal Vision," "Going to Extremes," and the forthcoming "Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin." These and more are on my blog.

New pre-publication comments on my Serengeti book:
"Boyd Norton has captured the magic of this ancient and majestic ecosystem. Through superb and deeply sensitive photographs and compelling accounts of his experiences there he introduces its animals and people. Serengeti: the Eternal Beginning is profoundly moving - you will understand why it is so important to preserve this place for generations to come." Jane Goodall

"Preserving the Serengeti is as much about saving our humanity, our link to nature and our own ancient past, as it is about stopping an environmental tragedy." Richard Engel, Chief Foreign Correspondent, NBC NEWS
