It explains the basics of equipment, focusing, exposure and magnification ratios alongside such topics as lighting for effect, employing colour as a compositional device and using depth of field creatively. With subjects ranging from classic close-ups such as plants and insects to micrographics and abstracts, plus showcases of the greatest exponents of close-up, Mastering Macro Photography is a complete manual for achieving creative and professional results.
