Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Go beyond the familiar--into the hidden world of pattern, texture, and detail that only comes into focus when you go close-up. Every breathtaking color photograph of such glories of the natural world as shimmering ice crystals, the rough flesh of a baby Chinese Water Dragon, and the translucent, colorful wings of a monarch butterfly will inspire you to try some new techniques. All the up-to-the minute information on close-up technology and style is here. Learn about all the tools of the trade, from camera to film to the all-important lenses; exposures; lighting; the range of subjects to choose from (even familiar household items!); and eye-grabbing compositions. You'll want to pick up your camera and start shooting immediately! 160 pages (all in color), 8 1/4 x 11.
