    Comments about Photography Field Guide: People and Portraits:

    This book is a gift to my children ages 21 years and 16 years. I have given each a DSLR camera with a tripod and a telephoto zoom lens and this book will be an instruction to them to take photos of people and portraits suitably composed.

    For millennia, fields in their myriad forms have been among the most fundamental elements of the landscape of human civilization. Illustrated with 300 photographs and handsome linocut-style prints, the book explains how different landscapes, climates, and cultures produced a variety of field types, from the terraced rice paddies of Southeast Asia to the impenetrable hedgerows of Northwest Europe, each reflecting both ancient traditions and agricultural progress. We see how Old World methods were adapted to new environments like the American prairie, the Australian outback, the African veldt, and the Argentinean pampas. We trace the development of the implements we've devised to work our fields, from hand tools to modern tractors and mechanical harvesters.
