Landscape photographers need look no further, but this is not just for natureheads. Stunning examples of Stephen Johnson's art abound but this is a reference source not a coffee table book. The images are stunning because of their delicacy and subtlety. There are excellent chapters on the history of photography, just how digital technology works, practical advice on scanning, Photoshop, printing. Also some thought provoking views on photographic ethics: Johnson is a purist, aiming to capture exactly what he sees, with the aid of his laptop in the field, while he still has the original scene in front of him.

You may find yourself agreeing with his view that shots today tend be over saturated and unnatural. So be inspired by his passion and the examples of his art. Be green with envy at his Better Light 144MP full colour resolution kit. He went digital in 1994 and was consulted, amongst other products and manufacturers, by Adobe in the development of Photoshop. You will want to buy, not borrow, this book.
