The realm of macro photography is like no other, because it homes in on a small portion of what we normally see in the natural world. By focusing only on a part of a plant or animal, we view it in a totally new light. We appreciate colours and textures - especially if they are quite subtle; patterns and designs become highlighted. We can make the ordinary look extraordinary. "Many a time I have seen things in the focusing screen that had not been apparent to the naked eye", says the book's author, Heather Angel.
Even though the process involved in taking natural close-ups is much easier than when Heather started photographing, several decades ago, images still have to be seen and isolated from amongst the plethora of subjects that exist cheek by jowl in the field. This is the thrill of working at the macro end of the scale. For it is here the unexpected can be discovered and captured for others to see and appreciate anew. Taking macro shots really is all about the art of seeing.
