Front Cover
Courier Corporation, Jan 1, 2003 - Photography - 160 pages
Nature reveals her unseen beauty in an up-close-and-personal fashion in the photographs of Paul Harcourt Davies and Peter Parks. Zooming in on the "faces" of dragonflies and hornets, unearthing the intricate patterns of fungi and mosses, and even capturing the active beauty of plankton, Nature Photography Close Up presents a "think small" approach to natural subjects. Containing dozens of full-color photographs, each accompanied by a succinct and insightful essay, this gorgeous book doubles as a showcase and an instructional guide. Any photographers with an interest in macro nature photography will enjoy this new way of looking at the unseen wonders around them.

Be wary - has little to nothing to do with helping you take nature photography with a digital camera. I got it as a gift - and most of it deals with technical aspects of getting good shots with a film camera. Not a lot can be skimmed if you've moved into the digital photography world.

It has the red admiral's scientific name listed as an orchid's scientific name. There is a big difference between a butterfly and a flower. The author clearly has no idea what he/she is talking about. False information.
