Remote Exposure – Reading a book about Photographing the Top of the World

You recently saw me post about a book called Weeds.  I’m not a botany buff, but I found the book interesting because it was from a totally different view on life.  For the same reason I’ve really enjoyed reading through the book Remote Exposure by Alexander Buisse.  Simply, it’s a Guide to Hiking and Climbing Photography.

The book is chocked full of exciting photographs with out of this world perspectives- every turn of the page is in view of a color or black and white photograph that’s taken from a view that certainly made the photographer’s heart skip a beat.  Although there is plenty of technical information in this book, some thoughts on logistics (how many cameras/which ones to take/which ones are heavy, etc..) and plenty of thoughts regarding ALTITUDE, this book provides relevant thoughts on:

  • Inspiration
  • High Contrast Photos
  • Composition
  • Telling the Story
  • and thoughts on Quality vs. Quantity (I go for Quantity- but maybe I’m wrong! LOL

One thing I learned that I apply to My life

Remote Exposure IS about mountain photography- but it does bring home a point about the subject matter- you’re there for the hike, and not just to take pictures.  So take time, look at the scenery, and don’t miss the enjoyment of the time you are spending on top of the world.  As a mommy blogger, you know, you see, and sometimes you suffer with the oodles of photos that I take of my family- this book has helped to remind me- to enjoy the scenery.
