4.0 su 5 stelle Good overview, sometimes confusing 29 settembre 2011
Di Karen S. Garvin - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Recensione cliente vite del prodotto gratuito (Cos'è?)
Like the rest of the For Dummies books, this one assumes that you have little or no background in the topic that you're reading about. Unlike some of the other Dummies books, the author Thomas Clark restrains from cracking stupid jokes every other paragraph. How refreshing! His writing style is direct, but friendly, without being condescending.

The book's first two chapters cover the basics of and the differences between macro and close-up photography. Here it got a little confusing: first Clark says the differences don't really matter, then he says that they do. You may have to read that twice to get what he's saying; it has to do with the ratio of your image size on your camera's sensor to the actual size of the subject. Once you understand this, you're ready to move on. Next, chapter 3 gets into composition and learning how to see creatively -- no photo book is complete without that. That completes Part I of the book.

Part II has four chapters that cover your photography tools: camera, lenses, reversing rings, extension tubes, and more. Clark gives you tips on shooting macro for both digital SLR cameras and for digital compact cameras that have macro capability. Part III covers lighting, composition, and exposure. Both natural light and artificial light sources are covered, and Clark gets more detailed about composition and how to select your exposures.

Part IV has six chapters on photographic subjects that you're likely to encounter with macro: nature, such as insects and plants; people and pets; product photos and still life; jewelry and other shiny stuff; and extreme macro. There's a chapter on post-production, which is what you do to your digital images once you get them onto your computer. Here I have a big bone to pick. The chapter attempts to cover too much ground and makes too many assumptions: first, the author (and editors) expects you to be working in Photoshop, and secondly, instructions are given only for Mac keyboard shortcuts (chapter 17, page 270). Not everyone works with Photoshop and most certainly not everyone is using a Mac. The editors should have caught this and I'm marking the book down one star because of it.

The book is very well illustrated with a variety of subjects: a shell, a needle and thread, colorful beetles, jewelry, and even a rotini pasta noodle! The photos are clear, crisp, and interesting, and the author tries to prompt your creativity by giving you ideas for photo stories. I recommend the book, but do try to read chapter 17 as an overview and not as a step-by-step instruction guide for every digital imaging program on every computer platform. That's for a few other books.

5.0 su 5 stelle Great Book! 25 agosto 2011
Di Bohdi Sanders, Ph.D. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Recensione cliente vite del prodotto gratuito (Cos'è?)
Digital Macro & Close-Up Photography is a great book for learning how to capture close-up shots with your digital camera. I honestly can't think of anything this book leaves out when it comes to this subject. Everything from the correct equipment to shooting techniques is covered in easy to understand detail. Another great thing about this book is that it is full of color photographs that the reader can use for examples. I found these full-color examples and technique comparisons were really helpful in understanding the authors points.

Thomas Clark also reviews many macro lenses and other equipment to help the reader make an informed decision when it comes to buying the right equipment for macro photography. I will not list all of the specific chapters and topics since you have the ability to see the table of contents for the book on this very page. I will simply say that this book really helps the reader understand different macro photography techniques, something that most basic photography books neglect to cover.

I am merely an amateur photographer, so I will not attempt to get technical in this review. What I will say, is that from the point of view from someone with little experience and knowledge in this field, I found this book easy to understand and very helpful. I think that it is a great book which covers the subject in such a way that even the layman like myself can understand and grasp the concepts that the author explains in this book. Well organized and extremely helpful!! 5 Stars!

5.0 su 5 stelle Continues the Great Work of the Dummies Books 9 ottobre 2011
Di NyReckDiver - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Recensione cliente vite del prodotto gratuito (Cos'è?)
Background: I am a Nikon shooter and shoot only in raw (limited exceptions). My status as a photographer is best described as part-time professional in that I have a day job but make low level money on nights and weekends using my skills. I also only shoot with Nikon pro-level glass.

This book continues the great work of the Dummies series on digital photography to include Digital Photography Exposure For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech)), Digital Photography Lighting For Dummies (For Dummies (Lifestyles Paperback)), and Digital SLR Photography All-in-One For Dummies. It is best described as a series for beginner DSLR users to intermediate users; typically consumer level users seeking to move up and soon to upgrade to cameras such as the Nikon D300s and higher for greater on camera control of exposure and lighting. This book introduces Macro Photography, a subject misunderstood by just about every consumer level shooter.

This book is written for a target audience of beginner photographers and serves as a good source of broad foundational knowledge from which you can build. Book layout is well thought and very logical, with the typical Dummies guide "readability" that I consider superb. The book covers equipment but does not push you into buying anything as some other authors tend to do in more advanced books. Of interest to me was his use of ordinary items as light modifiers, demonstrating with before and after photos that really drive home the point (I personally modify my 10 YO's point and shoot flash with a piece of a napkin for stunning results). As another reviewer noted, anyone who has an SLR and is just getting into lighting, this would make a nice resource but if you don't have an SLR, the info is still good, but you won't be able to apply as much control.

This book would be a great gift for consumer level shooters that want to go beyond the "P" (Program) controls of their camera. Also, a lot of the lessons transcend macro photography and can be applied in a myriad of shooting situations. Beginners will see immediate improvements in their macro work after just a few chapters, assuming they follow the book. Intermediate and advanced users less so, commensurately. The illustrations and layout of the book are stunning in my view. This is atypical of the series.

3.0 su 5 stelle Digital Macro and Close up photography 29 ottobre 2011
Di Debra - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Recensione cliente vite del prodotto gratuito (Cos'è?)
A pet peeve I have about photography books is that a book will claim to have depth on some certain subject but 90% of it is basic general photography. In my opinion, a book about macro and close up photography should not cover aperture, shutter speed and ISO (even if it is for dummies!). This is pretty much a basic photography book that has minimal amounts of information truly specific to macro photography.

Reading the book, you might not necessarily catch that. For example, the author will say things like, "In macro photography, lighting is really important." True, but that's not unique to macro photography. So while he says "in macro photography..." all the time, what he goes on to say isn't necessarily specific. Background, composition, lighting, etc. is fundamental photography, and macro photography really doesn't have its own unique composition or lighting rules.

The main things he covers that are actually specific to macro are equipment, nature and extreme macro photography (about 80 out of 300 pages). There are other tidbits throughout the book, but by and large it is a basic photography book with the word "macro" thrown in frequently for good measure.

Having said that, if you know nothing about photography and want to exclusively do macro photography without reading any other books, this may fit the bill. If you are versed in other types of photography, this book may prove to be repetitive. I think a better title would be "Basic photography with an emphasis in macro and closeup for Dummies."

5.0 su 5 stelle Review from a beginner for a beginner. 15 marzo 2012
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Recensione cliente vite del prodotto gratuito (Cos'è?)
I am about as far from an expert photographer as you can get so this is a review for beginners. I don't know if the information in this book would be helpful to a more experienced photographer or not.

I got my DSLR in order to expand from point and shoot and to be able to add some more versatile lens, both macro and close up (there is a difference, explained in the book), and telephoto. Since my knowledge is very basic, a Dummies book appealed to me. I found that it also has plenty of information to help take better pictures if you do use a plain digital point and shoot and not a DSLR. In fact, there is a short chapter specifically with tips for using a non-DSLR.

If you have questions regarding a specific topic related to macro and close up photography, this book is designed so that you can easily skip around to the topics you need. You do not need to read through the entire book to gain benefit, although it would be worthwhile to do so.

The quality of this book is much better than I expected from a "Dummies" book. The paper is of a higher quality and there are numerous beautiful, informative color photographs included. It is definitely well illustrated. It is easy to read and understand (for the most part. It does help if you have a basic knowledge of your camera, settings, etc; otherwise you may find yourself lost in places.) I think this book covers just about anything you need to know regarding macro and close up photographs from equipment to taking the pictures to editing. There is an extensive discussion of lighting. It provides tips for taking pictures of different types subjects, for example flowers, animals, people, and insects. I had never even thought of many of the things discussed for composing a photograph, just assuming things were like they were, but this book helps you think about your subject and setting in a way to maximize your results.

The idea behind macro photography is to move the lens farther from the digital sensor so that you can move closer to your subject. The farther the lens goes from the sensor, the closer you can get and the more magnified your subject appears in your frame. &quote;
