The only problem is it has made me want to spend a fortune on a dedicated macro lens! That said, however, the book also explores the less expensive routes into close-up photography such as extension tubes and point-and-shoot cameras. This is all very eye-opening advise for the beginner and not the 'what equipment to use' padding that often artificially bulks out photography/Photoshop books.
This is the first Peterson book I have read and I can see now why some of his older books have been top sellers.
I got this book for some extra ideas. What a brilliant idea this was. The author takes you through all the basics (good for the newbie and good for brushing up on some points), BUT the best about this book is all the ideas and examples. You are taken into another world and a new way of thinking! You get the most amazing ideas and things you will NEVER think of photographing.
Absolutely worth every penny!
I found this book very interesting and easy to read. The pictures are great too and the author explains how the picture was taken.
I`m now trying to copy what he has been doing!
Mind you, the author has been doing it for 30 years, so I have a long way to go.
For me, its a book I will be referring to in the future, so its not a one-off read.
This book did not do this for me, rather it gave an outline of equipment and a brief introduction together with some pictures.
Perhaps I needed a more reference type of book.
And it's extremely inspiring too; I've been eager to try out all of the suggestions and am no longer wondering why my own close-up shots aren't so exciting, because it's pretty clear to me now that I've read the book...
As a matter of fact I am, at this very moment, selecting other books from this author for my wish list.
