Landscape photography can be challenging compared to other areas of photography as there is not such an obvious subject. It is one of Nina's favourite areas of photography as it is all about dealing with light, and creating an image from what is there.

Nina looks at a wide range of topics in this book from the basics of framing and composition through the effect the lens you use will have on the image you take. She looks at lighting and how the seasons and weather have an effect on the images you take. Nina looks at the camera settings that are best to use and some accessories that can have a big effect on your images.
