5.0 out of 5 stars This book will give you a 'can do' attitude, November 6, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Understanding Close-Up Photography: Creative Close Encounters with Or Without a Macro Lens (Paperback)
I like Bryan's straight forward approach and the 'can do' spirit with which this book was written. His book is not filled demands for you to buy the most expensive equipment in order to capture photos like his examples. He informs the reader of all the equipment options from expensive to not so expensive and how to make the best use of the basic lenses that often come with a camera.

With illustrations of ways to completely change a photograph with point of view, he talks us through why a photo works or doesn't. He encourages the reader to ask themselves what they want to convey about a subject. He also trains us to look for and capture simple beauty and form. I appreciate the many photographs throughout the book; each one has notes on how it was created. It is clear that he loves his craft and wants others to join him in finding the same enjoyment in photography that he has.

We all look to accomplished masters to learn about things that interest us. Bryan is a masterful joyful photographer, and a sincere teacher. This is an inspirational book that I will keep and refer to for a long time.
