This practical book explains what is meant by macro photography and how to get even closer to your subject: not just a close-up of a butterfly, but details of the eye and wing scales.
Extreme Close-Up Photography and Focus Stacking includes techniques suited to any budget, and looks at ways to photograph virtually any creature, whether terrestrial, marine or freshwater. All the key elements to achieve extreme close-ups are built in a clear way, for both outdoor and studio use, and special attention is given to focus stacking, with both software and further enhancements covered.
