The difference between getting the shot and missing the shot comes down to split seconds and how you manage your gear and your technique. In Outdoor Action and Adventure Photography professional adventure sports photographer Dan Bailey shows readers how to react quickly to unfolding scenes and anticipate how the subject and the background might converge. Capturing those significant moments to produce powerful imagery that evoke the feel and mood of adventure requires specialized skills and a wide variety of creative ideas.
This book teaches photographers how to think geometrically and how to pull together the elements that make for a successful shot, all while being immersed in the action. The practical manual will improve your technique for creating more compelling adventure imagery, whether you're shooting ultra-marathoners splattered in mud, rock climbers in a crevasse, or mountain bikers hurtling past you.

"This new title from Dan Bailey aims to help photographers think geometrically and pull together all the elements that make for a successful shot, all while being immersed in the action and having just a second to get it all right. This isn't one of those coffee table books to inspire you through pages of large images, but rather a book to read, write all over and use in a practical sense. It's a text book, a reference guide, one that any budding adventure photographer will benefit from." - Shutter Hub
"From the first sentence, you just know this is a professional talking - and a professional with a passion for his work. I don't know many people who are both crazy talented at photography, and are also able to pen a seriously gripping book. Trust me, Dan Bailey is one of those few. [...] Dan's mastered the art, and the quality of his images, as well as the publications (Outside Magazine, National Geographic Adventure, The New York Times, etc.) in which his imagery appears, are all testament to that." - Outdoor Chics
"If you want to learn what is needed to be an outdoor action and adventure photographer this new book will teach you." - Paul W. Faust, TravelPhotographers.net

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
