It is not only what we see but how we see that makes a difference. Peter Watson tackles the often delicate process of interpreting and capturing landscapes in photography. Watson's dialogue is as insightful as his images - challenging us to transform our gaze from that of the casual observer to a skilled artist 'painting with light'. Thus - with patience and a meticulous eye - fields, trees, mountains and rivers become a complex pattern of lines, shapes, colours and textures.This comprehensive guide offers an almost scientific approach to seizing creative opportunities in your photography. Years of experience have prepared Watson with a range of tools and techniques to 'read' the complex text of an environment.
