By S. Moon
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have some experience of close-up photography.

I have written reviews on large scale model locomotives and rolling stock and taken many shots to support the script.

So some of the information clarified what I already knew; but there was a lot that was new.

The only problem is that this awakens needs for new kit to enable a better execution of the subjects one reviews.

The book is an ideal guide to the practice of macro-photography.

Do not worry if you only possess a point and shoot or bridge camera as the principles laid out for DSLR are equally applicable to much simpler cameras.

One advantage of digital is that every shot does not have to count and you can keep experimenting with a technique until you get it right every single time.

For many the macro end of their camera's focal range is probably an unknown, this book will help open up this often closed area of 'snapping' and allow you to take the pictures you may never have dreamed possible.
