PHOTOGRAPHING DORSET is a photography-location guidebook that guides the reader to the best places for photography in this beautiful county. Dorset is home to some of the most beautiful photographic locations in the UK. On its 95-mile long Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, you will find the pinnacles of Old Harry Rocks and the famous arch of Durdle Door.
Just inland is the 11th century Corfe Castle, the moored boats at Wareham harbour and the rolling hills and villages of Thomas Hardy’s Wessex. Mark Bauer, one of the UK’s leading landscape photographers, takes you on a tour of the classic Dorset locations and shares some of the area’s hidden photographic gems. As one of the UK’s best photographic tutors and co-author of two photography technique books, Mark also shares his technical knowledge in chapters on Composition, Long Exposures and Coping with Contrast. Over 60 locations and 250 beautiful photographs are featured together with detailed maps, directions and co-ordinates for each location. The guide suggests the best time of day and year including seasonal highlights.
There are accessibility notes, a sun compass, a list of shows, events and Dorset villages. The foreword is by Tony Bates MBE, President of the Dorset Wildlife Trust.
