I love this book! I love Nancy's approach to her craft! She knows how to shoot beautiful images technically but she also helps you to see and experiance what is going on around you. Michael and Nancy present information that is understandable, usable, and motivational. The book is filled with inspirational images that make you want to pick up your camera and experiment! A very worthwhile book that will sit well next to the John Shaw classic, "Closeups in Nature".

This is one of my all time favorite books on close-up photography. Nancy and Michael's work is wonderful and I enjoy reading this book often. Their work shows us a whole new world that we may have never realized was there. Their love of the beauty found in the smallest details and the tiniest of creatures shines through in this book. It inspires me to do better photography. The book is well thought out and put together, as well as beautiful to look at. It covers not just the technical aspects of photography, but also the creative process required in this art. It is a very worthwhile purchase. I would recommend this book to anyone who is trying to take their photography to the next level. Between this book and John Shaw's "Closeups in Nature" you are set to go!

I like this book, let me just say that. And everyone else seems to love this book. But to get real, I found this book to have too many pictures of what close ups you can shoot, and almost no pictures of the equipment she describes using, or of the positions people used to make the photos. And too much descriptive writing accompanying each photo. A bit too wordy for my taste, but I was able to take notes of the actual technical information that I was after which seems adequate for my needs. Yes buy the book for the info in it, it's good from that perspective.
