The Expanded Guide >Techniques : Close-up & Macro Photography
This new series of Expanded Guides focuses on photographic techniques not only to give you a comprehensive grounding in the subject but also takes you a step further to enable you to get much more from your photography. Expert advice, with useful hints and tips, is given by professional photographers, using practical examples of techniques for clarity, illustrated in full colour with the aid of clear diagrams and charts.
Macro Photography is an essential guide to a fascinating technique, beginning with an explanation of the difference between close-up and macro work. Aimed at the novice or more experienced amateur, the book describes the equipment for capturing true macro images, the 'macro' mode on standard DSLRs, and the use of zoom lenses, wide-angle lenses, dedicated macro lenses, teleconverters, bellows and reversing rings.
The theory of exposure and metering, light, colour and flash is explained, and there's practical advice on composition and focusing. Project ideas include success with flower photography, capturing the textures of materials such as bark and lichen, photographing butterflies, and abstract boat hulls.
Information on post processing explains file formats, raw conversion software, adjustments to contrast, brightness and shadows, understanding levels and curves, white balance and saturation, with helpful tips on removing imperfections, cropping for impact, and printing.
