About this book

Essential guide to a fascinating technique, beginning with an explanation of the difference between close-up and macro work. Aimed at the novice or more experienced amateur, Close-Up and Macro Photography describes the equipment for capturing true macro images, the 'macro' mode on standard DSLRs and the use of zoom lenses and dedicated macro lenses, among others. The theory of exposure and metering and light and flash is explained and there's practical advice on composition. Project ideas include success with flower photography, capturing the textures of materials such as bark, abstracts and studio work with food and jewellery. Information on post processing explains file formats, raw conversion software, adjustments to contrast, brightness and shadows, understanding levels and curves, white balance and saturation, with helpful tips on removing imperfections and cropping for impact.
