Photographing THE LAKE DISTRICT is a comprehensive photographic-location guide to the most beautiful places to take photographs in the English Lake District.
Author Stuart Holmes describes 70 locations and hundreds of viewpoints for the reader to visit.
Each location chapter starts with an overview describing historical, literary, geological, and natural history features including the photographic potential of a location.
Detailed directions with maps and sat nav information are given, along with access information including whether a location is accessible by wheelchair. Suggested photographic viewpoints are described at each location along with advice on how to take the best photographs whilst there.
It is lavishly illustrated with over 350 high quality colour photographs of Lake District landscapes and rural life.
This guidebook will appeal to both keen photographers and anyone with a camera who visits the UKs most popular National Park.
The introduction to the book includes chapters on seasonal highlights, best times to visit, how to get around the Lake District and the weather.
Photographic Technique and Advice:
The book is split into two sections.
The first section describes each location, the second section consists of 14 chapters offering photographic advice on how to improve your photography including: camera and lens choice, composition, exposure, depth of field, sunrise and sunset photography, how to catch a rainbow and how to photograph waterfalls.
On the front flap of the book there is a sun compass and sun elevation graphic, along with sunset and sunrise times throughout the year to make sure you are in the right place at the right time.
