5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful guide
This is a great guide,which i am sure will make a big difference to my close-up and macro photography.
I have other books by David Busch and i find they are all well written and in a straightforward format that is easy to follow. Buy it and you won't regret it!

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit basic
After reading the other glowing reviews, I am disappointed with the content of this book. Maybe I chose badly. For a complete newbie to photography this book would no doubt be a useful start. For anyone with some experience there is little to commend it. Albeit that this is a 'field guide' and therefore brief and to the point, I found nothing new or inspirational. The...

After reading the other glowing reviews, I am disappointed with the content of this book. Maybe I chose badly. For a complete newbie to photography this book would no doubt be a useful start. For anyone with some experience there is little to commend it. Albeit that this is a 'field guide' and therefore brief and to the point, I found nothing new or inspirational. The photographs shown are mostly typical (yawn) pictures of flowers and insects that show little creative merit. Nothing wrong with flowers and insects of course, but there is so much more to close-up / macro photography than this. To me the overall impression is of a book that feels dated despite the 2013 publication date. Again, in defence of the authors, maybe I chose badly. Certainly I have found David Busch's Nikon camera guides so much better. So, a book for a certain audience, but not me.

It's ok for an introduction to macro photography, but if you expect it to take your expertise to a higher level look elsewhere

The book does just what it said it does.. provide clear and essential information about close up photography.. in a book small enough to carry around in your bag or camera bag, and is handy as a reference book when out photographing. I also love the coloured photos which are provided as examples of the point being made.. makes it all the easier to take on board.. I would recommend this book for people like me, who still have a lot to learn about what makes a good photo.. from the technical side to the composition..

Another informative field guide, along with flash photography and portrait/candid/street photography field guides, these make 3 great additions to the learning curve for me, not too big not too small makes a handy size for travel, arrived ahead of time stated and excellently packaged,
