This volume is an invitation into the world of close-up photography. The topics covered in the book range from technical advice about the equipment needed to get started (cameras, lenses, film), lighting techniques (flash versus natural light) and accessories to use as your experience progresses or situations arise that demand them (filters, tripods and protective gear for both you and your equipment). The book addresses in detail questions of focus, lighting and exposure. It not only discusses simple solutions and techniques for capturing images, but it also gives advice on aesthetic issues such as composition and colour. Apart from the technical advice, the volume presents images capturing the exquisite detail of flora and fauna: flowers brimming with nectar, the intricate pattern of a butterfly's wings and the eye of a gecko, among many more. The book closes with a discussion of a further photographic frontier for future exploration - microphotography.
