Delve into the fascinating world of close-up and macro photography with Nina Bailey as your guide.
In this book, written specifically for Canon EOS photographers, you will learn how to achieve varying levels of magnification using your existing equipment as well as dedicated equipment including extension tubes, close-up lenses and macro lenses. You will explore the photographic techniques involved in achieving great images and explain why close up and macro photography are two very different disciplines requiring specific shooting techniques for each.
Close-up and macro photography can be very challenging as the magnifications increase, but this book will demonstrate that you can get some great results without having to use specialist or expensive equipment, making this is a subject accessible to all photographers.
Itís easy to think that this is a seasonal area of photography, yet there are opportunities for shooting all through the year. Many of the butterfly images in this book, for example, have been taken in British butterfly houses where Nina runs training events during the winter months. But even out in the field there are great subjects to photograph all year round.
This Essential Guide will also explain the camera overrides you need, how lighting and framing will affect the images that you take and the settings you need to achieve the necessary depth of field. You will also learn how flash can be used to illuminate the subject for dramatic results.
145 pages long and full of beautiful and inspiring close-up and macro images, with full details on camera settings needed to achieve the shots. Printed in full colour and wire bound. A4 size.
