John Shaw's closeups in nature

About this book
The nature photographer John Shaw offers the first book to apply closeup techniques to the subject of nature. Most of the available material on closeup photography concentrates on studio techniques, which can't be used effectively in the field. Discussing the basic technical considerations as they apply to outdoor closeup photography, Shaw covers exposure, equipment, and composition. Specific techniques and equipment applications include - extension tubes and bellows; macro lenses; internal focusing lenses; zoom lenses; supplementary lenses; teleconverters; flash; and lighting. Studio work and other methods are explained in relation to why they are not practical in the field. The book is illustrated throughout with Shaw's fine, full-color images.

John Shaw's landscape photography

Creator: John Shaw | Photography - 1994-04-01

The Gitzo 341, with the same legs as the 320, gives you the option of removing the centerpost assembly entirely and replacing it with a flat platform. Consequently, this tripod will go absolutely flat on the ground if you need that ...

About this book
From grand vistas to intimate woodland glades, landscapes are favorite photography subjects. Too often, however, photographer's visual experiences of the majestic outdoors aren't reflected in the pictures they make. Why? Because many people overlook the importance of good technique, believing that exotic locations and expensive lenses create fantastic pictures. As John Shaw, the famous nature photographer and best-selling author, demonstrates in this definitive book, expertise as a landscape photographer comes from mastering techniques and developing a personal response to nature, not from having a large budget for travel and equipement. John Shaw's Landscape Photographyteaches that producing good photographs means learning how to control the tools of photography: camera equipement, lenses, film, light, and exposure. The goal Shaw proposesis to make technical proficiency second nature, so that it doesn't intrude when it is time to compose great pictures. With lessons fully illustrated by 195 color photographs, including many before-and-after sequences, this beautiful book also covers all the basics of photographic design and composition that characterize brillian portraits of the landscape.

    0 3/5 PDXJosh (Portland, OR) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) The ballhead must be removed for this to folded to its stated dimensions. The newer 1544t has a shorter center column to allow for the ballhead to be covered by the legs when they are folded back. I bought this one and was disappointed until I realized they came up with the 1544t. Much better and only a few bucks more. The only difference again is the slightly shorter center column. 99.9% of the time you should not raise the center column anyway to keep the tripod more stable. I now have the 1544t with a Really Right Stuff BH-30 ball head and the combo is perfect for backpacking and travel. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 24, 2013

    A Tripod's Tripod

    0 4/5 OldCanUser - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This may be the ultimate travel tripod. It should definitely be in the upper quadrant of travel tripods. It is pricey but good. The quality to excellent. The ease of use is noteworthy. I have travelled several times, by plane with this tripod, and it is very convenient. I have yet to be asked to check it. This includes international travel. It fits very well in my carryon bag and the slightly over 2 pound weight is not a bother. This tripod, despite being light weight, is very steady. And the fact that the bottom of the center piece has a hook that you can attach your camera bag to increase the steadiness is a very convenient feature. Thus far I am glad I bought this tripod. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 8, 2011

    one of the best in stability to weight ratio

    It's a bit pricey but hard to beat it in stability to weight ratio. I think it's overkill if you have a camera that's less than 2 pounds, but if you need an ultralight, stable tripod and have a camera/lens combo more than 2 pounds this tripod is fantastic!I had a Velbon Maxi 343E tripod before that's about the same weight, is taller (4 sections vs the 3 on the Gitzo), but also more wobbly. That tripod worked fine when I had a lighter camera/lens combo (Canon Rebel XT & 17-55mm - 2.5 lb) but with heavier camera (Canon 5D MkII & 24-70mm - 4 lb), I needed something more stable. The Gitzo is quite solid in comparison and the construction feels great in your hands. I also have a Gitzo GT2542L Mountaineer 6X Carbon Fiber, which is made of the same material, but larger and weighs more than twice as much. It works great at home or a studio, but I made the mistake of lugging that tripod on an overnight backpacking trip. I won't be making that mistake again, now that I have... 5/5 O.

    0 5/5 Patrick Roe - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gitzo Series 3 Systematic 3 Section Long Tripod GT3532LS (Electronics) The Gitzo GT3532LS is my third Gitzo tripod.I purchased two aluminum Gitzos 20 years ago. They served me very well and were still in very good condition. I decided to sell them as they were heavy and I did not use them as much as I should have.After doing much research, exploring many of the Chinese made models, I decide to stay with Gitzo.This new Gitzo is 5.5 pounds with the head I chose (half the weight of my old Gitzo.) It is very, very stable. The G-Lock leg lock system is great. The refinements brought to this 2012 version of this Systematic tripod are true improvements over its predecessor. With the exception of needing a very small tripod for travel, or needing to support extremely large, heavy lenses (600mm-800mm), this is a perfect tripod.I would offer one suggestion to Gitzo. Since tripod heads have become stronger, yet smaller, I would move the head locking screw in toward the center of the mounting plate just a bit. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 28, 2012

    Excellent height for 6' users, excellent stability!

    I originally purchased the GT3542XLS as a replacement for an older, much cheaper aluminum tripod that I recently broke. The 42XLS turned out to be much too tall for what I needed. I replaced it with the GT3532LS, and it is absolutely perfect for a 6' person. Using the Jobu Pro 2 gimbal head for bird and wildlife photography, the 32LS puts the viewfinder at perfect eye level height for me, which is exactly what I needed. I'd originally chosen the 42XLS and its extra height to support leveling on uneven ground, however that can be accomplished with a leveling base if you really need it, without the hassles of setting up an extremely tall tripod (such as only partially extending certain legs.)The stability of the GT3532LS blows me away. Compared to my previous aluminum tripod, as well as my GT0542 Mountanieer (a very lightweight Series 0 traveling and hiking tripod with very compact collapsed size), the 32LS is as solid as a rock. The large base makes mounting tripod heads a... 5/5 Jon Rista (Aurora, CO USA) - See all my reviews, March 12, 2013

    Much better than I expected

    Why spend nearly $800 on a tripod?First, there are many good sources of tripod reviews. Thom Hogan has an article on his website about tripods and heads where he argues the case to save money and time by simply doing it "right the first time." There are also some good educational points on tripod selection on the Really Right Stuff web site. Both of these sources argue for buying a good quality set of legs.The general consensus is simply that if you want the best mass market tripod get a Gitzo. Yes, if you are on a budget you can find less expensive options, but if you read the above two sources and do you own observations of the actual tripods you will soon see the validity of their arguments.

    Rock Solid Tripod.

    0 5/5 Cajie B "cajie" (Kuwait) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gitzo GT3541 Series 3 Carbon 6x 4 Section G-Lock Tripod - Replaces GT3540 - Black (Camera) I've gone through a number of tripods from the cheap chinese ones, to the SLIK carbon-fiber to a Manfrotto. As I do a lot of long-exposure photography, I realized that if I want the absolute best image, I need to invest in the absolute best in the market. So Gitzo it was. This was on my "wish list" for a couple of months while I debated on spending $650. One day, I noticed it was on sale of $500. My credit card never stood a chance.Holding the tripod in your hand, you can immediately see why it commands such a premium. It feels light yet rock-solid. Legs can be quickly adjusted and locked with a simple twist mechanism.The center column can be removed without the need for any tools for additional stability, or to go very low on the ground. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 3, 2013

I love that you can take out the center column to get flat to the ground - great for macro shots! It also stands at a decent height, so no bending down to look through your eyepiece to compose your landscape photo (a problem I had with a cheaper tripod). There's no wobble since there's absolutely no flex in these legs. Highly recommend it, despite the cost -- it'll save you in the long run by avoiding going through the many cheap tripods first :) I also found that the Hakuba tripod case HAKUBA USA INC PSTC100 Tripod Case fits this tripod with ballhead attached with ease. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 23, 2012

    Extremely solid and flexible

    I purchased this tripod after reading the other two reviews here and seeing this tripod at a local camera shop. I did lots of research before choosing the 2541EX, but ultimately decided to purchase this tripod for the following reasons:1. The build quality of the tripod is fantastic (which you would expect for a Gitzo)2. The flexibility that the center column provides3. It is quite light, but very sturdy (love that carbon fiber!)4. It compacts down to just over 20 inches-- it will fit inside my carry-on.I have a Really Right Stuff BH-55 ball head paired with this tripod, and I doubt that there is ANY shooting situation that this tripod combined with that head cannot handle. My research told me that there might be a better match for my RRS head (one that can support more weight), but this tripod was listed as suitable, and I have found it to be rock solid with all my lenses (I have used it with the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS and the Canon... 5/5 E.

    I recently purchased this tripod to replace my Bogen 3021 tripod I have been using for the past 13 years. The Bogen served me well, however was starting to feel heavy and wasn't quite as flexible as I wanted. While searching for a new tripod I found a Bogen tripod similar in flexibility to the Gitzo, however it didn't have the same flexibility as the Gitzo (the legs had stop points when being spread rather than being continuously variable and the same was true of the center column which only had two positions).My first impressions of this tripod:1) Lightness - this was a bit of a concern initially, but I found that the carbon fiber does seem to dampen quite quickly and was able to support my camera and lenses in a variety of positions (some quite awkward to test out the flexibility).2) Flexibility - between the variability of the legs (height and angle) and the rotation of the center column I was able to put this tripod in a variety of positions,... 5/5 Vivek Gupta - See all my reviews, December 3, 2009

This review is from: Gitzo GT2542L Series 2 6X Carbon Fiber 4-Section Tripod with G-Lock - Replaces GT2541L (Electronics) I bought this tripod for a recent trip to Arizona to replace a Bogen. It was great performed in water, rain, sand and mud. I was able to get long exposures in wind with a 300mm lens no vibration at all. I'm now in the market for another tripod to replace my larger Giant telestudex and it will be another Gitzo, well made, light weight, tough and sturdy what else do you need in a tripod. Well worth the price. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 8, 2011

    Great travel tripod

    0 4/5 Don B. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gitzo GK1580TQR5 Series 1 6 X Carbon Fiber Traveler Tripod Kit for Cameras (Electronics) If you have the cash, this tripod is worth the expense. It is very compact, well-made, light-weight and reasonably stable. It has a hook for hanging a weight for additional stability. I don't even notice it when it's in my bag. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 6, 2013
