Photographing Plants and Gardens by Clive Nichols
Aimed at all photographers with an interest in gardens, from amateurs who need to learn techniques to professionals wanting to hone their skills, this book is illustrated with the author's own work. He leads the reader through the variety of approaches to garden photography, analyzing vistas, close-ups and abstracts, and offering advice on coping with light and weather to produce the best results, whatever the conditions. There are also insights into the practicalities of making a living from photography. Clive Nichols's photographs of English gardens have appeared in leading magazines, and in 1992 exhibitions of his work were held in at the Ilford Gallery in London, and at the Chelsea Flower Show.
