With Phototips – Principles of Nature Photography, the Van den Bergs reveal their secrets – secrets that have kept them at the forefront of nature photography for many years, and that have enabled them to create the compelling images for more than 20 magnificent coffee-table books. Instead of producing an in-depth encyclopaedia for nature photographers, the Van den Bergs have opted to keep PhotoTips simple and to the point. By showing an image, and then revealing a tip for both beginners and pros based on that image, they have produced an unique book. In addition to the tips, the Van den Bergs teach readers how to take images similar to those in the book – how to think when capturing the image and which camera settings to use.
The first in the PhotoTips series, Principles of Nature Photography is an excellent literary “workshop” on the axioms of photographing nature. Advice by the internationally-awarded Van den Berg team is presented in an easy and accessible register which makes the PhotoTips books essential to all aspiring and established photographers.
