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

    Expensive but worth it

    I told myself "I'll never spend $600 on a tripod! How good could it be?" Well, when I was at a local photo store I lifted a Gitzo Mountaineer in one hand and the I already have in the other. The difference in weight was surprising. The Traveler is even a bit lighter. It's so much lighter than any aluminum tripod out there.For traveling the Traveler folds up to a bit over 20" with the legs folding up over the head. I have a Manfrotto 498RC2 Ball Head with Quick Release Replaces Manfrotto 488RC2 ballhead and unfortunately I have to remove it to fold the legs back. Not a big deal but a bit of a pain.If you carry a tripod with you hiking or just walking around town you'll quickly appreciate the weight savings this offers. It's good quality construction and should last years... 5/5 Fred (northern VA) - See all my reviews I told myself "I'll never spend $600 on a tripod! How good could it be?"

    Exceptional for what it is.

    I purchased this tripod for a recent international trip as I was traveling with only carry-on luggage and my other tripod is far too large to fit in such an arrangement. Knowing that this is a rather tiny unit, I didn't have particularly high hopes regarding overall stability, even considering the name brand. It turns out I was mostly wrong and this unit has done so much to impress me that I've yet to go out with my large tripod since obtaining this one. It works very well for me. It won't necessarily work very well for you, so please read on.I'm 5'11" and with the legs fully extended, the center column all the way up, with a Really Right Stuff BH-40 and a Nikon D600, the viewfinder sits maybe an inch below eye level. As far as I'm concerned, this is as close to perfect as I'm ever going to get from a tiny tripod. Yes, I'd much rather have a tripod that gets to eye level with no center column for the added stability, but that's clearly not going to happen with this... 5/5 kendalltristan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Fantastic

    This tripod is amazing. I first bought a 1542T but returned it and got this one. This feels more stable than the 1542t and also it folds shorter since the head is mostly inside the folded legs (like the 1541t and 1544t). It is something like 0.7 pounds heavier than the 1542t but I felt like the length was more important since the 1542t stuck out too high above my photo backpack (Lowe Pro - Photo Sport 200AW). They both fit ok, but the 2542t is less awkward since it does not stick out above the top of the backpack. I also felt the added stability was worth the 0.7 pounds. I may consider also getting a smaller lighter very compact tripod for longer hikes, but for now this one is perfect. I usually don't carry it more than a few miles or so. I think it weighs about the same as an average full frame lens (including the head) -- for reference. I have a Markins Q3t head mounted on it and I couldn't be happier with the combination.I also have an extremely heavy Manfrotto metal... 5/5 Kirby Miller - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    High quality, compact, light, stable

    0 5/5 Zozobra (Santa Fe, NM USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gitzo GT2542T Traveler Tripod (Black) (Electronics) I just started using this tripod and really love it. I also have a Gitzo GT3541XLS Series 3 Long 6X Carbon Fiber 4-Section which is great. I am 6' 2" and I wanted a very tall tripod (the GT3541XLS ) works great for very tall people, I can raise the base over my head! The problem is that it does not fold down as small as this tripod, and it is not as light. Hence my reasons for purchasing this Traveler Tripod. I am glad I got the Series 2 legs since they are more rigid and stable than the Series 1 -- especially when using a long lens. I have not yet tried this with my 600 mm lens, however I am sure it will do fine based on my experiences using smaller lens (200 mm). I use this with an Arca Swiss Monoball DP head and it folds up nicely in the bag that comes with the Traveler tripod. Nice ! Glad I purchased this, Gitzo is noticeably more stable, lighter, and easier to use than other well known tripod brands I have used. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 4, 2013

    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

    0 4/5 Bob D. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gitzo GT3542L Mountaineer Tripod Ser.3 4S Long (Black) (Electronics) Compared to Ser 2 GT2542LS, which I like better. Pros: heavier tubing. Easy adjust hight with center column (important feature for 4X5 field camera). Seems as solid as Ser 2. Open (non extended) about eye level for me (6'2"),(so is Ser 2, LS). Con: Heavier than Ser 2 and collapsed length no shorter than Ser 2. Feet on this are slick and slide on hardwood/tile floors, making this less stable overall. Also, Ser 2 feet have built in spikes, while with this one, the are tool applied option. Mounitng plate smaller: The RRR BH-55 head "hangs over". Large plate on Ser 2 a stability plus, I think. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 18, 2014
