Peak Landscape and Light: A Photographer's Guide to the Peak District. Karen Frenkel Reviews
In the best possible lightThis book is packed with brilliant, almost perfect, images of the beautiful Peak District. It is obvious that Karen Frenkel has put a huge amount of effort into capturing all of the scenes, which include landscapes, flowers and rocks amongst many other subjects, in literally the best light possible. There must been a lot of planning and preparation and thought before she finally clicked the shutter on each exposure.The results are stunning.Descriptions of each subject accompany every photograph, and she has added a few notes about her approach and the equipment that she used at the end of the book.Whether you are familiar with the Peak District or living on the other side of the planet, you cannot fail to be inspired by the beauty that Karen has managed to capture through her lens.
I was a little concerned that the text might be full of impenetrable (to me) details of shutter speeds when I am really only looking to enjoy places I have been and find new places to go. However, the book manages this quite nicely and the main text is more of an account of the realities of life as a landscape photographer and what it takes to get some of these stunning shots. There's a lot of lugging kit, sleeping in a bivvy bag or setting out before dawn and getting extremely cold... as well as serendipity, looking and then stopping. I liked that she included images she hopes to improve on with subsequent visits, and I felt her seasonal approach was useful even to me as someone who only occasionally gets the phone out to take a picture. She describes how various features of the Peak District - dales, moors - photograph better at different times of year.I shall of course now be thinking of finding the waterfall she declines to name.It was remarkable how many of the images were ones I have bought as greetings cards. She really does take photographs which stand out in the shops and which say 'Peak District'
