Excellent book for both beginners and intermediate users

I have read a lot of books on photography, but this has definitely been the easiest one that I have read. This is not to say that it is a book about just the basics. Initially I was disappointed that it did seem to be covering photography basics, but often the info contained little nuggets that I was not aware of and which are extremely useful.br /br /His tip on finding the hyperfocal point is invaluable and I had not found it in other books.br /br /I like the fact that most of the photos are taken with a Nikon D70, proving that an top-end camera is not required to produce stunning shots. Ross really knows his macro photography and I would recommend this to anyone interested in the subject. You will learn from it, and if you practise the methods he advocates, you will become a better photographer.br /br /I got this out of the library, but I suspect I will be purchasing it shortly as I will want to return to it again and again.

Enjoyable entry to macro

I have just become interested in macro photography and this was the first book I purchased. I found it to be very interesting, with basic information. I enjoyed reading through it and enjoyed the photo examples. I’m sure for someone more advanced it is too basic, but for someone just starting out, it is a decent read.

I did not think that this book had all that much that couldn’t be found in many other books or in the many photo sites on the internet.

Beautiful Dragonflies, how I love thee!

The cover of this book alone drew me to buying it and I get all happy inside every time I look at it. Macro is a joyful hobby, particularly bugs, and for me, dragonflies are the most exquisite of creatures. I am lucky I live in a state that has a ton of dragonfly varieties… This is a great book, really good info on digital cameras and equipment, techniques, and ideas. If I had to recommend one macro book, this would be it.

Good guide to macro photography.

This is truly an in-depth book on close-up photography. It focuses on techniques for getting great pictures of subjects from very close distances. It’s approach is simple enough that a beginner can understand, yet goes into enough depth that anyone could learn from it. br /br /A good companion to this book is Closeup Shooting: A Guide to Closeup, Tabletop and Macro Photography. If you have both, you’ll own everything you need to begin taking wonderful macro pictures.
