Outdoor Photography Competition

Win a copy of Cicerone's Outdoor Photography by Jon Sparks and Chiz Dakin

Photography and the outdoors could have been made for each other. This book is about making the most of that connection. Outdoor enthusiasts who want their photographs to do full justice to the quality of their outdoor experiences need look no further.

Building on the foundations of the original Cicerone guide to outdoor photography, this second edition has been rewritten from the ground up. Fully up-to-date with the latest digital developments, it is naturally illustrated with a host of stunning images, giving you a taste of what you may learn to achieve. Professional outdoor photographers Jon Sparks and Chiz Dakin introduce and explain essential technical concepts such as aperture, shutter speed, exposure and depth of field - all essentials in making the most of your subject matter. But don’t worry, the authors use only the clearest possible language to explain these terms, so you won’t be lost in jargon.

This edition has also been expanded to cover a wide range of outdoor activities. Whether you wish to take photos as a participant or a spectator, Jon and Chiz offer help for shooting walking, climbing, cycling, kayaking, and even underwater scenes. With advice on what equipment is needed, and how to protect it from the elements, as well as guidance on camera settings for each situation

The emphasis is on practical, realistic advice for people who want to take better photographs of what they like doing best, while still enjoying that activity to the full.
