It has been said many times that photography is painting with light, or that photography is all about light. For Jeanine Leech, the idea of painting with light is a passion. She uses it as a brush for color, texture, and dimension to create dynamic and expressive images. In this book, Leech details her techniques for finding and using the best light to create breathtaking landscape images. To get that special moment, you are often chasing the light. In landscape photography there are moments of defining light. It can be a single moment that may only last a second when the light is just perfect. These moments don’t happen every day but when they do one frame can tell the story with more visual impact than all the others. The ability to improvise, to stop and get the light when these moments occur randomly, is the difference between producing a standard photo and something that truly stand out. This book provides the basic principles of photography necessary for capturing this magic successfully. Starting with a rundown of the equipment that Leech uses and explaining the core concepts of photography, the book proceeds to detail shooting at different times of day. From the first light at dawn, through midday and onto dusk, Leech provides stunning examples of how each type of light can be used. Each photo in the book is accompanied by the camera settings used to capture it. True magic light is rare. It happens in a fleeting moment, not to be repeated again, lasting only a few minutes or seconds. Its quality is so unique that it changes the color, appearance and ultimately the mood of the subjects it falls upon. Part three of the book focuses on the different types of landscapes. First weather is covered. A photo shoot in the Smoky Mountains shows how attention to detail and setting can make the shot. The light and the weather change in mere seconds. As Leech points out, knowing the basics of photography and how to work your equipment quickly is essential. Each of the stunning photos in the book is a testament to this. After that Leach discusses how she chooses different landscapes. Intimate landscapes can be found anywhere. Sometimes making artistic choices like only focusing on a small portion of a setting provides an image with greater impact. Finally, the book covers the use of polarizer’s, various filters and multiple digital darkroom techniques.

Author: Jaida Jones
Led to victory by its magic-fueled Dragon Corps, Volstov has sent a delegation to its conquered neighbors to work out the long-awaited terms of peace. Among those in the party are the decorated war hero General Alcibiades and the formerly exiled magician Caius Greylace. But even this mismatched pair can’t help but notice that their defeated enemies aren’t being very cooperative. The hidden truth is that the new emperor is harboring a treacherous secret—and once it is revealed, Alcibiades and Caius may be powerless to stop it. With their only ally an exiled prince now fleeing his brother’s assassins, the countryside rife with terror, and Alcibiades and Caius all but prisoners, it will take the most powerful kind of magic to heal the rift between two strife-worn lands and unite two peoples against a common enemy: shadow magic. BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett's Dragon Soul.

This is a book for scholars of Western philosophy who wish to engage with Buddhist philosophy, or who simply want to extend their philosophical horizons. It is also a book for scholars of Buddhist studies who want to see how Buddhist theory articulates with contemporary philosophy. Engaging Buddhism: Why it Matters to Philosophy articulates the basic metaphysical framework common to Buddhist traditions. It then explores questions in metaphysics, the philosophy of mind, phenomenology, epistemology, the philosophy of language and ethics as they are raised and addressed in a variety of Asian Buddhist traditions. In each case the focus is on philosophical problems; in each case the connections between Buddhist and contemporary Western debates are addressed, as are the distinctive contributions that the Buddhist tradition can make to Western discussions. Engaging Buddhism is not an introduction to Buddhist philosophy, but an engagement with it, and an argument for the importance of that engagement. It does not pretend to comprehensiveness, but it does address a wide range of Buddhist traditions, emphasizing the heterogeneity and the richness of those traditions. The book concludes with methodological reflections on how to prosecute dialogue between Buddhist and Western traditions. "Garfield has a unique talent for rendering abstruse philosophical concepts in ways that make them easy to grasp. This is an important book, one that can profitably be read by scholars of Western and non-Western philosophy, including specialists in Buddhist philosophy. This is in my estimation the most important work on Buddhist philosophy in recent memory. It covers a wide range of topics and provides perhaps the clearest analysis of some core Buddhist ideas to date. This is landmark work. I think it's the best cross-cultural analysis of the relevance of Buddhist thought for contemporary philosophy in the present literature."-C.

A brand new thriller with a supernatural twist from New York Times bestselling author Lilith Saintcrow. Anna Caldwell has spent the last few days in a blur. She's seen her brother's dead body, witnessed the shooting of innocent civilians, and been shot at herself. Now she has nowhere to turn-and only one person she can possibly call. Since Anna dumped him, it seems waiting is all Josiah Wolfe has done. Now, she's calling, and she needs his help -- or rather, the "talents" she once ran away from. As a liquidation agent, Josiah knows everything about getting out of tough situations. He'll get whatever she's carrying to the proper authorities, then settle down to making sure she doesn't leave him again. But the story Anna's stumbled into is far bigger than even Josiah suspects. Anna wants to survive, Josiah wants Anna back, and the powerful people chasing her want the only thing worth killing for -- immortality. An ancient evil has been trapped, a woman is in danger, and the world is going to see just how far a liquidation agent will go. . .

“Written with a style and humor that haven’t been seen since Mark Twain.”—Los Angeles Times What if the Second Coming didn’t quite come off as advertised? What if “the Corpse” on display in that funky roadside zoo is really who they say it is—what does that portend for the future of western civilization? And what if a young clairvoyant named Amanda reestablishes the flea circus as popular entertainment and fertility worship as the principal religious form of our high-tech age? Another Roadside Attraction answers those questions and a lot more. It tell us, for example, what the sixties were truly all about, not by reporting on the psychedelic decade but by recreating it, from the inside out. In the process, this stunningly original seriocomic thriller is fully capable of simultaneously eating a literary hot dog and eroding the borders of the mind. “Hard to put down because of the sheer brilliance and fun of the writing. The sentiments of Brautigan and the joyously compassionate omniscience of Fielding dance through the pages garbed colorfully in the language of Joyce.”—Rolling Stone

“White Magic is magnificent.” —Kristen Arnett Bracingly honest and powerfully affecting, White Magic establishes Elissa Washuta as one of our best living essayists. Throughout her life, Elissa Washuta has been surrounded by cheap facsimiles of Native spiritual tools and occult trends, “starter witch kits” of sage, rose quartz, and tarot cards packaged together in paper and plastic. Following a decade of abuse, addiction, PTSD, and heavy-duty drug treatment for a misdiagnosis of bipolar disorder, she felt drawn to the real spirits and powers her dispossessed and discarded ancestors knew, while she undertook necessary work to find love and meaning. In this collection of intertwined essays, she writes about land, heartbreak, and colonization, about life without the escape hatch of intoxication, and about how she became a powerful witch. She interlaces stories from her forebears with cultural artifacts from her own life—Twin Peaks, the Oregon Trail II video game, a Claymation Satan, a YouTube video of Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham—to explore questions of cultural inheritance and the particular danger, as a Native woman, of relaxing into romantic love under colonial rule.
