Special techniques for creating unique, artistic, close-up images macro, or close-up, photography is gaining popularity, and this book covers all of the challenges associated with taking great close-ups: depth of field, focus, and exposure.
My husband gave me this book as a gift. It's wonderful! Each section dives into different photo subjects and offers assignments with an online component if you choose to use it. It's a book I will read thoroughly and keep on my shelves as reference and refresher for some time. I've already had a chance to put some of the tips to use and can see an improvement in my macro work.
