Introduction

I am excited to share my photographic knowledge of Yosemite National Park with all who seek it. In this book, I guide you to 29 of Yosemite's most photogenic locations in alphabetical order. For each location, I tell you where the landmark is located, where to get the best image, when to get the best image, and what equipment will be most useful. You can use this information and the maps included with each landmark when planning your trip to Yosemite, and it will help you come home with great photos.

While the book serves as your guide to photographing in the park and allows you to find all the classic images, I want to encourage every budding photographer to use it as a starting place. Take the images outlined in the book, add your own personal touch to the classic views, but also go beyond what I describe and find some unique angles and perspectives when you visit Yosemite. Create your own vision and portfolio of Yosemite images. If you get a great one, please share it with me at www.LewisKemper.com
