Learn landscape photography from the old masters of painting!
I have written a 325 page ebook about landscape photography. However, it is not the usual sort of book containing tips about exposure time or composition. Instead, this is an overview of the history of landscape painting and what the old masters can teach the modern landscape photographer.
A great landscape painter can create images that connect directly with the heart and soul. He or she does not have to wait for perfect light or luck. So, the masterpieces contained in this book represent the ideal vision of the landscape. Their perfection is probably impossible to attain with a camera in the real world, but we can sure give it a good try!
Much of what I learned about how to photograph the landscape came by studying these paintings. It is big, so it will take a while to download.

The small iPad pages on the screen shots below make it look like there are over 600 pages, but in the full-sized PDF version, there are just over 300 pages. About half of the book is text, and half are photos of the paintings.
This PDF eBook sells for only US $9.95. It represents thousands of hours of research and work in the field.
The iPad ePub format shown below is too restrictive for this sort of book with large illustrations so I am not releasing it. PDF is better for large illustrations, so that is what you will download. If you have any questions, contact us at the email address at the top of the screen.
Below are pages of the iPad ePub book format.
There are issues with ePub books regarding big photos that make photo books difficult to format. When the iPad in landscape mode showing 2 pages at a time (as above), the pages are very small and so are the photos. In portrait mode (showing 1 page at a time), the pages are bigger and so are the photos, but then you can't read as much text and see the photo on the adjacent page at the same time. This is a compromise that is difficult to resolve.
On the current version of the iPad, you can not pinch and expand a page, as you can on a web page. So the size of the original format is what the reader will get!
