Insights from Beyond the Lens

Inside the Art and Craft of Landscape Photography

Insights from Beyond the Lens is a short new book from landscape photographer Robert Rodriguez Jr that explores the art and craft of landscape photography from a holistic perspective. Based on real world experiences as a photographer as well as an instructor, speaker, and blogger, Robert distills his approach to capturing evocative images in a series of essays based on his "Beyond the Lens" blog. 

While many books focus on the gear and technology, the aim here is to look inside the motivation, passion, and vision involved in successful landscape photography. Go behind the scenes as Robert explains how several images were made, how he draws inspiration from the Hudson River School of painters, and what resources he recommends for further exploration.

Inspiring and thoughtful

I’m not new to Robert Rodriguez Jr. work. I study his pictures, follow his blog when I can,and on one occassion attended a two hour lecture he gave. Robert does more then share his work. He shares himself. Beyond the Lens is not a long ebook but there is so much helpful information and beautiful images. I feel I can go back to it time and again; always able to learn something new. I look forward to seeing more books like this written by him.

This is a great brief book for those interested in photography in general and in landscape photography in particular. It's very inspirational and motivational.

Well-written and truly inspiring. While I was impressed with the technical advice/expertise; I was most impressed by the honest and, frankly, motivational tone.
