Go beyond the familiar--into the hidden world of pattern, texture, and detail that only comes into focus when you go close-up. Every breathtaking color photograph of such glories of the natural world as shimmering ice crystals, the rough flesh of a baby Chinese Water Dragon, and the translucent, colorful wings of a monarch butterfly will inspire you to try some new techniques. All the up-to-the minute information on close-up technology and style is here. Learn about all the tools of the trade, from camera to film to the all-important lenses; exposures; lighting; the range of subjects to choose from (even familiar household items!); and eye-grabbing compositions. You'll want to pick up your camera and start shooting immediately! 160 pages (all in color), 8 1/4 x 11.

Illustrated entirely in color, this solid book provides a fairly comprehensive introduction to the field of close-up and macro photography. In Part 1, the book logically discusses camera systems and lenses, along with special lenses and accessories for capturing flowers and insects in unique miniature worlds. The author then moves on to a discussion of film lighting, exposure, and filters for close-up photography. The third section of the book deals with composition and working in different environments, both indoors and outdoors. Davies concludes with helpful information about organizing one's files, digital photography, and professional work in this fascinating specialty. The appendix features graphs on calculating depth of field, determining exposure values, and other technical information. Beautifully illustrated and clearly written, this book will be of value to both amateur and professional photographers who wish to learn more about the challenges and pleasures of this unique field of photography.
