Co-authored with renowned Scottish photographer Bruce Percy, Understanding Light discusses the practical use of TPE to plan and execute landscape photographs and some of the theory of natural light of the sun and moon.

With examples from locations around the world, including Bolivia, Iceland, Patagonia and Scotland, Bruce Percy discusses how TPE helps the photographer plan to maximize shooting opportunities on the ground.

“Rather than a point-by-point ‘how to’ manual, the book explores at a high level some of the science behind natural light, and illustrates key points with a number of case studies where I explain the thinking and planning behind some of my images.”
