“The strength of this book lies in the author’s ability to explain complex theories and techniques in a deeply personal and highly accessible manner. This is no text book; it is a love letter to a craft.” – Outdoor Photography

“5 stars: It must be said first that Fran Halsall takes a good picture. The collection of landscapes in Light & Shadow are soft, subtle, and most importantly, realistic. Yet the real stand out is that Fran has explained how she made each image and her reasons for taking it.” – Amateur Photographer

“A valuable addition to any would-be photographer’s bookshelf, although the photos alone are worth the cover price.” – Geographical

“Perfect for landscape inspiration.” – Digital SLR Photography
