In this title, equipment and basic techniques are clearly explained. It is a comprehensive guide and technical terms are demystified in Jargon Busting boxes. Subjects including insects, reptiles, wildflowers and manmade textures discussed with stunning example shots Ross Hoddinott has completely revised, and also expanded upon, his hugely successful Digital Macro Photography (9781861085306). This book takes you on an incredible journey into the macro world where you can see insects that look like aliens, the hidden symmetries of plants or the normally invisible workings of a machine blown-up to huge proportions. Technical terms, the basic techniques and how to get the best from your camera are all explained in a direct and easy-to-follow way. Choosing your subjects, lighting them and post-camera processing are all covered in the same accessible way, accompanied by stunning example shots and invaluable tips.
