Format: Paperback
As a beginner in Macro Photography, I found this book useful. It was thorough starting at the beginning by describing what macro photography is and the various pieces of equipment needed. The author then moves into more technical information such as lighting and depth of field. In his photos, he fully describes which camera was used, which lens, f-stops, shutter speeds, ISO, and additional information. At the end of each chapter he gives an "assignment" and encourages you to post your photo on a particular web site.
He goes beyond the most obvious macro subjects of flowers and insects. He covers everyday objects, beauty of textures, abstracts, and people.The book is filled with many photos to learn from.
I like the fact that it was not written so technically that I could not understand it. It was easy reading.Highly recommended for the beginner who wants to learn about macro photographer.

Format: Paperback
By concentrating on small images and texture representation a photographer's overall approach and finished results can appear more professional. MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY PHOTO WORKSHOP is thus an outstanding title not just for working macro photographers seeking to improve their results, but for any looking to understand macro images in everyday surroundings, and use the latest camera devices to capture the best shots. From common macro problems and digital editing techniques to shooting insects, flowers and more, MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY PHOTO WORKSHOP is especially recommended as a supplemental classroom text for any photographer moving beyond the beginner levels.

Strengths: Magnificent layout makes the book easy to read. Superb general examples of photography, close-ups, large screen shots and (photoshop) screen well done. The author has included many insightful ways of looking and dealing with Macro Photography as well as photography in general. Breadth and depth covered in excellent fashion. This book is Intuitively written and easy to understand.

Weaknesses: This is not a tutorials guide per sey. You have to "digest " the readings slowly step by step like a textbook. The tutorials are learned through these worthwhile readings. If you want a quick guide is not for you (but you will miss a great book!).

Novice/ Intermediate/ Advanced

Rating:5/5

Most of my photography has been with nature, sky and other worldly objects, using telephoto, regular or other lenses. Lately however I have seen objects such as spiders, plants and other objects that show objects close up. Having dabbled in taking close-up pictures of spiders, flowers, moths and more, I thought it lucky i that a book called Macro Photography appeared at the right time when I was searching for further information about creating better close-up photographs. And this is why I was happy about finding it.

The author, a freelance writer, has a popular photography blog and is known for his creativity and work with hardware. He also has a good way of using words and I found that his ideas and ways he communicated them within the tutorials and more, a great read.

Format: Paperback
I am a novice in macro photography, having been exposed only to medical/dental close-up photography in the past. The author has been kind enough to keep the text less technical and geared more to the novice to average photographer. The examples are annotated with the source and equipment used. He provides tips, cross-references with each new chapter, and has `assignments' that allows one to practice what was read. At the conclusion of the book he provides websites to allow you to see what others have to offer. I recommend this book for both the novice and the average photographer as an excellent resource.

I enjoyed reading this book from cover to cover the day it arrived and found it to be an excellent, up to date reference for anyone intending to enter the wonderful world of macro photography.
The author takes the reader through all the important basics including equipment selection, lighting and subject matter. The subjects are explained in detail which is both easy to read and practical in its application. The text is complimented with photographs which are fine examples of the macro technique. The photographs cover many areas of the macro art form and are sure to give inspiration.
A very useful guide particularly for those about to purchase macro equipment.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
You don't have to mortgage your home to buy a ton of the latest and greatest tech toys to do macro! At least, that's the first message I go from this very kind and informative author. Right off the bat, he points out lots of things you can do with a point-and-shoot (I have one, and immediately tried some of his suggestions.)Going on, I broke out my DSLR and added a small amount to my inventory of accessories and got intrigued by some of the more demanding stuff, and was very pleased. He takes the reader along at a reasonable pace, not too fast for a beginner, but won't bore the more advanced, by any means. Always wanted to do macros, but, between portraits and scenic, I never got around to it. Glad I bought this book!
