There is no blank canvas with which to start, but rather a rich tapestry of existing materials that photographers have to make sense of and showcase in a way that reflects their artistic vision.

Beyond the Grand Landscape contains:
- Twelve key creative concepts and field practices you can use to discover and photograph small scenes.
- Exercises to facilitate your learning and application of the concepts the book teaches.
