High magnification photography is immensely exciting and rewarding. Through the close-up lens, everyday objects produce striking images, and small creatures show amazing detail that usually goes unnoticed.

This book is both a practical guide to each step of the close-up process, as well as a source of inspirational ideas and subjects for producing high-impact images.


  • Cameras, lenses and equipment
  • Step-by-step techniques for high quality results
  • Ideas for close-up subjects, including flowers, insects and still life
  • Composing close-up pictures for maximum impact
  • Using software for creative effect
  • Suggestions for presenting macro photographs

" All in all this is both a good read and a comprehensive source of good advice not only for someone setting out to produce close-up and macro images, but also for those of us with lots of experience, who might well be stimulated to try something new. I shall certainly be recommending this excellent book to students on my photography workshops. "
