PhotographyBLOG Review: Close-Up Photography

August 20, 2004 | Mark Goldstein | PhotographyBLOG | 3 Comments |

Close-Up Photography“Close-Up Photography” is one of four books in the Digital Photography Expert range, all written by professional photographer Michael Freeman and published by Ilex. As the name suggests, this particular book concentrates on the world of close-up, still-life and macro photography from a digital point of view. The book is aimed at the photographer who wants to learn as much as possible about the theory, techniques and beauty of the close-up world. There are 160 pages brimming with 400 full colour photographs, lots of technical tips and real-life case studies to help illustrate the author’s points. It’s certainly a very well-presented book that belies its £17.95 price-tag, but will the advice inside actually help to improve your photography skills? Read my short review to find out.

I agree absolutely 100% with the reviewer. I use the book regularly and find it utterly reliable and user-friendly. Simply the best book of it's sort that I've come across. I wish more "how to" books were as well considered.

This is a book on CLOSE-UP photography and that should be kept in mind when reading it. While macro is covered as much as close-up photography, both are given strong emphasis and many techniques can be applied to either situation.

I just bought a Canon Macro lens: EF 100mm, 1/2.8. I really like it a lot (though, to be honest, I don't know much about photography just yet).
