First Light - A Landscape Photographer's Journey
Joe Cornish and Charlie Waite
Drawing on twenty years’ experience, Joe Cornish, one
of Britain’s most distinguished landscape photographers, has distilled the
key elements of his craft into a collection of thought-provoking essays
accompanied by a stunning selection of his photographs. The subjects range
from his beloved North Yorkshire, to the Colorado Plateau and the rugged Cornish coast to
the rainforests of New Zealand. They reflect the enormous range of his work and illustrate how he puts his philosophy into practice. The text
with each photo
describes how the picture was taken and the considerations – light,
weather, timing, composition, etc.
Full technical data for each photo is given, but the real
fascination lies in Joe’s explanations of what went into creating each of these
photographs. These personal accounts are full of practical advice on subjects
ranging from anticipating changes in the weather to the use of filters to
capture colour as the eye sees it when, unfiltered, the film might show
something very different.
