    With one of the longest titles I have reviewed, I have a copy of Alan L. Detrick’s Macro Photography for Gardeners and Nature Lovers, The Essential Guide to Digital Techniques. The book is as beautiful as it is informative. Macro Photography is printed on glossy paper and filled with striking pictures of flora and fauna. Mr. Detrick clarifies the difference between close-up photos and macro photography, and his instructions cover many different aspects of creating that perfect shot. Photography With one of the longest titles I have reviewed, I have a copy of Alan L. Detrick’s Macro Photography for Gardeners and Nature Lovers, The Essential Guide to Digital Techniques. The book is as beautiful as it is informative. Macro Photography is printed on glossy paper and filled with striking pictures of flora and fauna. Mr. Detrick clarifies the difference between close-up photos and macro photography, and his instructions cover many different aspects of creating that perfect shot. Photography is not an inexpensive hobby. The vast selection of lenses and equipment is staggering. To do macro photography properly you need quite a bit of equipment and he gives a brief description of each. He also discusses how to travel with your gear. While this may be overwhelming for the casual photographer, for a dedicated hobbyist the information is essential. Even if you don’t have all the equipment there is much to learn from this book. The photographs in the book are both beautiful and interesting. I especially appreciated that each description contains the type of camera used, lens and exposure information and many contain an explanation of why he shot it as he did. He shows the way he experimented with changing light in some of the shots. He also writes about possible problems with a photograph and how he adjusts to compensate. There is a good amount of information on proper exposure, depth of field, using the histogram, bracketing, focus, composition, background and movement. At the back of the book there is additional information on recommended reading, associations, workshops, websites and a glossary that I found especially useful. Macro Photography is a beautiful display book, but also so much more.

    Checked out from Library. Was 2008 edition. Much of the info on digital cameras is out-of-date. Info on macro was very basic. Would be okay for a beginning photographer, although there isn't much depth for those who have basic skills (e.g., know how to use camera in manual mode & knows basics of composition). If there is a more current edition, it might not appear so dated, but the info on DSLRs is quite different now than in 2008. Other reviews indicate that this is a beautiful book.

I could tell from the photos that they probably were beautiful, but that was lost on the Kindle that I have. I would recommend reading the print version of this book so that the photographs can be enjoyed more. Even with the intro level of the text, I think there could be much to learn from studying the photographs, but that isn't going to happen, IMO, on an e-reader.

    picked up to learn some more digital tricks, but now that i'm without a digital camera (sadly, broken), am reminded that my old bulky SLR can accomplish the similar tricks... certainly good to review! picked up to learn some more digital tricks, but now that i'm without a digital camera (sadly, broken), am reminded that my old bulky SLR can accomplish the similar tricks... certainly good to review!
