Close-Up and Macro Photography: Art and Techniques by John Humphrey
High magnification photography is immensely exciting and rewarding. Through the close-up lens, everyday objects produce striking images, and small creatures show amazing detail that usually goes unnoticed. This book is both a practical guide to each step of the close-up process, as well as a source of inspirational ideas and subjects for producing high-impact images. Topics covered include: cameras, lenses and equipment; step-by-step techniques for high quality results; ideas for close-up subjects, including flowers, insects and still life; composing close-up pictures for maximum impact; using software for creative effect and suggestions for presenting macro photographs.
