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!

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.

Covers all topics necessary for an introduction to the subject and is much better than I thought on first glance
Some convoluted sentences that make understanding difficult on occasions but that is just a writing style I'm not keen on.
The worst part of the book are the photos! They look very dull, unsharp and uninteresting. I doubted that the originals were but the printing of the photos is extremely poor.

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..

I have looked at quite a few books on close-up photography but this one surpassed any expectations. the text is readable and easy to understand, covers all aspects of the genre, the examples are generally very good and it is what it says on the cover - compact. Well deserving 5 stars.
