HIGH LIGHT - The Landscape Photography of Dave Butcher
My first book is sold out. It was reprinted by the same printer that did the original print run to make sure the same high quality printing was achieved.
It has 64 pages with 60 of my photographs in 4 galleries: Mountain Light (shots from the Alps and Colorado), England and Wales, Scotland, Skiing and Snowshoeing (including ski mountaineering and piste skiing)
I have also written 3 sections covering the basics of: Hill and mountain landscape photography, equipment needed for this type of photography, darkroom techniques that I use, including the 'Ilford way' for split grade printing
The first 2 sections are written in general terms and are relevant to all photographers, not just those taking black and white photographs. They are just as appropriate for photographers taking colour and digital pictures as to black white photographers.
The short darkroom section is specific to black and white printing in the darkroom. It describes basic techniques, as well as those like split grade printing, in simple terms such that they can all be used routinely.
