Views of Nature Photography
This book is about the craft and art of macro or close-up photography and how to come home with strong images that you can proudly display. It was written to supplement our intermediate level Macro Photography courses, but it can be a stand-alone reference as well.
We typically open our Intermediate Macro Course with the statement “Welcome to a grad school course in close up shooting!” We hope you’ll not be intimidated by some of the technical details, but you must realize that digital photography in general and macro in particular is a pretty technically sophisticated undertaking. Like any other endeavor that involves a level of technical understanding, practice makes perfect or at least makes the photographer more comfortable with the activity.
In this book we hope to provide you with tools and techniques to get those great shots.
