Title: The Backpacker's Photography Handbook
Author: Charles Campbell
Price: $9.00 Shipped CONUS
The author draws from an excellent background and beautifully presented examples. If one is interested in backpacking into the wilds and taking good pictures consistently, this book describes exactly how to do it. This is definitely a book worth reading for learning about the tradeoffs involved when doing backpacking and photography. He discusses the equipment and the techniques that need to be considered when you can't carry 300lb of equipment. It is very well written and explains the art of good photography extremely well. His technique actually works! I've tried it and I have had more consistent results. His checklists for gear and his comments about the items are extremely valuable for those who have not ventured far or for those who would go farther. He gets very specific when recommending gear, which is something I liked. The information is starting to get somewhat dated; this book was published in 1994. However, he talks about the reasons why he recommends certain gear, which is what you really need to know anyway.
