Photographing the Southwest: Volume 1--Southern Utah (2nd Ed.) (Photographing the Southwest) Reviews
I own four books in this series. Photographing Oregon, Washington, Northern California, and the Southwest pt. 1. This book is incredibly useful when planning photography trips. I was on a very short trip to a few destinations in AZ and this book was a great guide. Including information for the best places to shoot, it also gives great tips for best time of day, and season to go to these places. It includes lots of information about the requirements to hike, drive, etc. to each of these places.
I purchased this book, along with others, in advance of my brother's and my upcoming trip to Zion, Bryce Canyon and Arches National Parks. As we are both avid amateur photographers, our priority for the vacation is to shoot great pictures while in Utah. I purchased several books to learn about the parks, find places to eat and stay, etc.; however, I purchased Photographing the Southwest Vol 1 specifically for guidance on getting the best pictures on our trip.
I bought this guide and Volume 2 (about a different area) a few years ago and have used them on three different trips across the SW USA.
We're spending three months this fall in the Colorado Plateau area. Avid photographers--just can't say how much I appreciate how well the Southwest series (all three volumes) is done. Gives timely information and images to give you an idea of what to see--with room to explore a bit on your own. Saves countless hours scouting locations. This book is a must for avid photographers--but it does not substitute for gathering the proper maps and related information for the hike. I use this book in conjunction to Falcon Guides/Moon, etc. as well as Nat Geo Trails Illustrated Maps and other topo maps. The beauty of this series is the author provides a peek at what you'll see--along with some helpful hints about best times to visit, what lens is best--filters and so forth. That's priceless.
