Updated, expanded, and covering the latest software, this new edition of the bestselling Digital Landscape Photography brings the amazing techniques pioneered by Ansel Adams and his contemporaries to every digital photographer.

Ansel Adams’ imagery – especially his iconic vision of the American National Parks – is widely published and instantly recognisable. Many photographers will have heard of his renowned Zone System, but that is just the tip of the iceberg; his unparalleled attention to detail, which once required hours in the darkroom with specialist tools, is finally accessible to all.

Michael Frye’s own photography provides many stunning examples of the results that can be achieved, and as one of Adams’ natural successors in the field, he is well placed to analyse the many inspirational shots from the great masters of landscape photography. Combining the cutting edge of today’s digital work with some of the best-known photos ever taken, this book a must-read for any landscape or nature photographer.


[Frye's] images are accomplished and he has captured the spirit of Yosemite, its unpredictable and dramatic weather and light very well. He uses his images and those of Ansel Adams and Eliot Porter to great effect to illustrate his lessons in improving our digital images. The book is peppered with quotes from these renowned image makers and he draws on many of their techniques. (Review of 1st edtion)
