Appendix One, "My Camera Bag & Gear," looks at the equipment that the author uses when he is out on his shoots. Appendix Two, "My Cleaning Kit," breaks down the tools that the author uses to clean his cameras. Appendix Three, "My D3 Settings," has screen shots of his D3 settings, and Appendix Four, "My Original Teddy Bear Exercise," shows his exercise for exposure compensation comprehension.
Captured is not as much about f-stops and lenses as it is about time and the purposefulness of learning ones craft. It is just as much about learning about your subject so that you can be prepared to capture it correctly as is it about getting the correct exposure.
Moose Peterson is an old fashion story teller, and it comes through in the way he presents his life in photography. Each segment captures your interest and attention and sucks you in like it would on a cold fall night sitting around a campfire. When one segment is done, you are waiting for the next, and luckily it is right there for the taking.
What I also like about Captured is that throughout the book are various tidbits that provide additional knowledge, tips, techniques, and other information in a way that does not take away from the storytelling. Then there are all of the great images that have become associated with Moose Peterson's wildlife work. Thirty years of photographs that span from the film age to the modern digital era.
It would be easy to say that this book is about capturing images, but that would be only half the truth. It is also about taking time and capturing the experience of your photography. It is about savoring the ride. If you want to learn from a master how to take your wildlife photography to new heights, and even if you are not a wildlife photographer, the information you will garner from Peterson's experience will take anyone's work to new levels. I very, very, highly recommend this book.
