While there, I did a Photo Walking Tour with a pro photographer who works in Yosemite, arranged through the Ansel Adams Gallery. To my surprise, during our hike she pulled a well-worn copy of *this* book out of her backpack and cited it as a good reference for shooting photos in Yosemite -- so that would be another helpful endorsement for it.
I was disappointed to find so much coverage of photographic technique. While some technique discussions directly relate to the unique character of Yosemite (for example talking about color and the lack of it in granite) most of it feels more like filler, and indeed makes it harder to navigate to the sections of interest.
The book also lacks an index so the only useful navigation tool is the brief table of contents. Without that table of contents it would be hard to find any particular section and even with it, you're going to have to resort to man-made book marks to find what you want. For example if Pohono Bridge and Fern Spring caught your fancy but you didn't remember to book mark it or remember its number you'll have to resort to scanning all of the maps and/or all of the numbered interest points because despite the page of content, there is no entry for this viewpoint in the table of contents (and remember there is no index).
I would prefer the maps be all together at the front or back so that it would work better as a reference book. I would also have liked to see some more examples of "out of the way" hikes to desirable vistas.
Finally, I would like the author to have provided some sort of "effort vs eye-appeal" rating to help me focus on which sunrise locations are the "not to miss" areas and which are "ok". Perhaps the author can even suggest a few itineraries.Read more ›

We relied on this book to plan a photography trip to Yosemite. It did NOT disappoint. We knew of the popular places, but Michael suggests lesser-known spots and when to be there.Published on February 22, 2013 by delwin
This is an ok guide if you still shoot film. This guide has a lot of shortcomings. Unless you shoot 6x7 or a view camera. Digital is now king! Read morePublished on May 11, 2012 by GCC
