Macrophotography: learning from a master
The one book that any photographer needs to become an expert in the art of portraying nature close-up, Macrophotography invites readers to explore a magical world in which miniature landscapes are magnified in all their radiant splendor, capturing flora and fauna in exquisite detail. In these pages, in remarkably clear, larger-than-life stop-action images, we see the delicate stamen of an orchid, the intricate pattern of a butterfly's wings, snails climbing on mushrooms, and the eye of a gecko. This splendid how-to manual not only reproduces these images in glorious full-color photographs, but also provides technical information of immense value to nature photographers, both amateur and professional. Topics covered in this outstanding guide range from practical advice about basic equipment and more sophisticated accessories to aesthetic concerns such as composition and color. After explaining how to proceed in the variety of terrains nature photographers may encounter in their travels, the book examines macrophotography in the studio, discussing how animal and plant life can be shot in aquariums and vivariums and using studio backdrops.
