1 review for Photographing Iceland

  • Great book and just what I wanted because, instead of a book full of technical how-to as to photographing Iceland, the book gives five detailed tours of Iceland.

    The author tells us where to stay, what kind of car to rent, and even what something to bring 🙂 Of course, he also talks about the camera equipment you will need. Even points out that sheep often across the road and with no warning — The guy knows the country!

    He also points out that many potentially dangerous sites in Iceland are not fenced: for example glaciers, and certain features for which he suggest you take a guide with you. Not something I read every day in photography books 🙂

    The bulk of the book is the author’s detailed description of five tours to take, including Reykjavík, which will yield great photographic opportunities. For each location he gives “top tips“ including what to eat, where to eat, where to stay, etc. he talks about the tourist destinations, for example art museums in Reykjavík, as well as where and when to shoot pics.

    In his essay on the northern part of Iceland he talks about which towns to stay in to avoid long drives, especially in the Icelandic dark winter. Schulz does not skimp on the technical aspects we all look for-for the mud pools at Hverir, for example, he gives exact camera settings including the filter to use to shoot the colorful mud holes.

    And for each location, he often give us the time of year to be there that time of day to shoot, what equipment you will need for that specific location-for example, bring along a long lens when you visit the coast in order to shoot whales, local phone numbers to call for information, and many website links to helpful information about your stay there.

    The area that appeals to me the most by his description is the “golden circle“ with its hidden waterfalls. Schulz describes one area is having a secluded waterfall that flows into a blue gully — how could you not want to see that for yourself?

    This is, happily, not just a how-to photograph book but instead a complete guide to visiting Iceland with your camera. It’s just about all you would need to take with you on your trip as far as great books. Tells you where to go, where to stay and eat, what equipment to bring, even what kind of car to rent for particular locales, and what time to arrive at your chosen sites. Well worth having!
