National Audubon Society Guide to Nature Photography

Nature is so inspiring. Between the brilliant colors of flowers and animals and the dazzling light show put on by the sun, moon and stars, there isn't any shortage of potential for truly breathtaking photographic art. If you like taking pictures of the amazing world around us, you know that sometimes it's hard to capture the true essence of your natural subject, be it flora or fauna. There are times when you may get lucky, but you can take literally a hundred pictures before you get one that really tells the story the way you want it to.

The beauty part is that with digital photography you can get a good idea of how you're doing while you're at the location. Before digital, you could snap a couple hundred pictures without knowing if any turned out the way you'd hoped. Then, you'd have to wait for processing before you could see the final products of your efforts. It was costly and often frustrating. Now, with digital photography the wait time is minimized and you don't have to spend money developing pictures that you don't want. The trouble is that using digital cameras requires different techniques to get the most out of your work.

Picking up a full-spectrum guide to digital natural photography can save you some frustration by showing you tricks that will help you get the best pictures for various subjects, from sunsets to reptiles and everything in between. I suggest taking a look at Tim Fitzharris's National Audubon Society Guide to Nature Photography: Digital Edition. This book is a great guide that you can use as a resource for planning from home and take with you when you go out to take pictures.

Nature photography can be a very satisfying hobby, and with digital cameras it's much less expensive than with traditional film. Still, getting the best pictures in the great outdoors takes skill. Having a great guide can help you snap beautiful photos that you'll love to show off or enjoy from
