Mastering Macro Photography

Mastering Macro Photography

David Taylor

Macro and close-up photography has long held a fascination for both professional and amateur photographers, with its potential for revealing and transforming an extraordinary world normally hidden from the human eye. With more manufacturers than ever before producing macro lenses and accessories, and digital technology offering fresh creative possibilities, there has never been a more exciting time to explore this macro world with your camera.

This is the definitive guide to the essentials of modern macro. It explains the basics of equipment, focusing, exposure and magnification ratios alongside such topics as lighting for effect, employing colour as a compositional device and using depth of field creatively. The author explores digital techniques such as focus stacking and the use of smartphone apps both to compose shots on a camera via WiFi connection and to trigger cameras when shooting at high speed.

With subjects ranging from classic close-ups such as plants and insects to micrographics and abstracts, plus showcases of the greatest exponents of close-up, Mastering Macro Photography is a complete manual for achieving creative and professional results. 176 pages.
