Discover a new world of texture, pattern, and color through close-up and macro photography
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 and a source of inspirational ideas and subjects for producing high-impact images. Topics covered include cameras, lenses, and equipment; techniques for high quality results; ideas for subjects, including flowers, insects, and still life; composition for maximum impact; using software for creative effect; and suggestions for presenting macro photographs. This guide will be a source of inspiration for botanists, still life photographers, insect and garden photographers, and advertising photographers.
