Take Your Best Shot (Popular Photography): Essential Tips & Tricks for Shooting Amazing Photos

Taking amazing pictures is getting easier and easier with the advances in digital photography. In Take Your Best Shot, the first book in this series with Popular Photography, our expert writers and photographers showed how to capture amazing images in the moment, and how to set up a breath-taking shot.

This book takes image-making to the next level, showing how to create a wide range of photo effects, from the subtle (adjusting the color in a picture to create a different mood) to the artistic (compositions merging several photos to dramatic effect) to the downright amazing (how to photograph yourself levitating . . . it’s easier than you think!)

Competition titles either treat image-manipulation and trick shots as an afterthought, or concentrate solely on specific software products and techniques. This book does nothing but show such insider hints—and proves that you don’t have to be a Photoshop whiz—or even own Photoshop—to pull off the fantastic feats in this book.

Set-ups and techniques are described in detail, with easy-to-understand illustrations and diagrams, and a wealth of beautifully inspirational photography. Beginners will learn ways to quickly move into new realms of expertise, and even old pros will pick up some new tricks. Anyone who has ever looked at an amazing composition or a skillful composite and said, “How did they do that?” will find this book irresistible.

“An excellent roadmap to the joys of photography. Even experienced photographs will find it a vivid reminder of what first sparked their passion for photography.” – Brian Smith, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer

“What’s not to love? Smart, fun, fresh, and hip to history, this is a really hot book that comforts the beginner and challenges the old pro.” – Anthony Bannon, Director of the George Eastman House, International Museum of Photography & Film

Whitney Houston cause of death revealed

Mystery has surrounded the tragic passing of Whitney Houston. Now the L.A. County coroner’s office has determined the official cause of the singer’s death. A toxicology report released today concluded that Houston died from accidental drowning. She was also found to have cocaine in her system at the time of death. Other contributing factors included heart disease and cocaine use, according to an investigation.

The report adds that “cocaine and metabolites were identified and were contributory to the death. Marijuana, Alprazolam (Xanax), Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) and Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) were identified but did not contribute to the death.”

Houston was found unresponsive in the bathtub of her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton on February 11, hours before Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party. She was 48 years old.

Investigators found no evidence of cocaine in the room. Prescription pill bottles were discovered, but the amount of pills was “not in alarming amounts.”

Patricia Houston, who was Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager, released the following statement: “We are saddened to learn of the toxicology results, although we are glad to now have closure.”

An Exclusive Introduction from Author Harold Davis

Dear Amazon Reader,

I’m passionate about landscape photography. I love getting out, traveling, finding new vistas, and photographing them. But, there’s a surprising paradox with landscape photography. On the one hand, this kind of photography might seem easy: It isn’t hard to find spectacular landscapes, no specialized gear is needed, and on its face, landscape photography doesn’t seem technically difficult.

On the other hand, as Ansel Adams put it, “Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer, and often the supreme disappointment.” Great landscape photography is, in fact, far harder than it looks.

Part of the trick is being in the right place at the right time. But even if the scene you are witnessing is sublime, there’s no guarantee that you’ll bring back compelling digital landscape imagery without the right creative ideas, techniques, and tips—which is where Creative Landscapes: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques comes in.

I’ve always loved landscape photography, and in the course of my career I have had the opportunity to photograph a wide variety of landscapes from many perspectives. I’ve pursued my love of the landscape by hiking solo across the Brooks Range—the northernmost Mountain range in Alaska—crossing ranging torrents with my camera perched precariously on my back and the rest of my gear on handmade rafts. I’ve gone hungry in my pursuit of the wilderness landscape. I’ve dangled from small planes and helicopters, lashed in with a harness, to photograph urban and wild landscapes from above. And I’ve sought the dark spaces of the night, to photograph landscapes and show them in ways they haven’t been seen before.

Digital has changed almost everything about the tools of the landscape photography trade, and how captures are processing in the digital darkroom.

My goal in Creative Landscapes: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques is to be your companion and guide in landscape photography. I work with you to find the right locations for your kind of landscape photography, and help you figure out the right time to be there. I share my best creative ideas about landscape photography with you, and explain the equipment, tools, and techniques you need to master. Finally, I show you how I process my landscape work in the digital darkroom.

Each of the photos in this book can be used as idea generation for your own work—how you might approach a specific kind of landscape to make spectacular photos of your own. I’ve included the story behind each photo in the book, as well as full technical data about the captures. Like other books in my Creative series, Creative Landscapes is intended to be useful as an idea book.

Creative Landscapes is divided into four parts. As you’ll see, there’s a great deal of material that covers a lot of ground:

Part I: The Tao of Landscape—Tao is a philosophy with ancient roots that refers to the primordial essence of things, the natural order of existence, and the fundamental aspects of the universe. My approach to landscape photography involves embracing the Tao of the world, and this section begins a conversation about integrating one’s work holistically with the world around us and the demands of modern life.

Part II: Tools & Techniques—Explains in detail the camera settings you need to know to make the most of your landscape photography opportunities.

Part III: One World, Many Landscapes—Photographing a mountain landscape is different from photographing a desert—and both are different from capturing a seascape, or the city as landscape. This section explores different considerations to keep in mind depending upon the kind of landscape you are photographing.

Part IV: Landscapes and Post-Processing—With digital photography, taking the photo is only the beginning of creative image making. In this section, you’ll learn to use RAW processing, Photoshop, and HDR techniques to improve the creative impact of your landscape photos.

I hope you enjoy Creative Landscapes: Digital Photography Tips & Techniques. I hope it encourages you to try new techniques. Be adventurous, and seek out awe-inspiring vistas. Explore the world around you, as you capture your own creative landscapes.

Best wishes in photography!

Harold Davis
