On My Bookshelf: 5 Great Landscape Photography Books

A New Video Series

For me, photography books are still very important in my development as a landscape photographer.  I value the experience that a book gives me.  Rather than simply just scrolling through an image feed on one of the popular photo sharing sites, reading a book gives me the time to really look at a photograph.  It's a more involved experience and I like the way it forces me to take time away from the computer to look at an image in detail.  Besides, looking at photographs in print is always a great experience.

So I've decided to create a new series of videos for my YouTube channel called On My Bookshelf. In each video will talk about a book (or even a few books) that are important to me and tell you why.  I think we all should spend more time reading photography books, and hopefully, these videos will give you some ideas on what to read next.
