The first of what will be a series of short books covering photographic related topics. Hopefully useful, sometimes thought provoking or at least interesting.
None will ever cost more than $5, but the first one is on me.

No-charge! Free! Nada! No-strings attached.

All I ask is that you provide me with some honest feedback in the comments below. Maybe even suggest a few topics you would like to see covered in future offerings. Maybe if you really like this one you might give me a follow on Instagram or Facebook?

Feel free to pass this on to a friend whom you think might find it interesting.

To receive your copy, simply head over my store.

  1. My apologies for this late reply.
    First, we need to agree on some terminology. “Micro” and “Macro” are generally considered to be interchangeable terms. I will use the more common “Macro”. “Macro photography” is generally assumed to begin at a magnification of 1:1, and include magnifications higher than this. A magnification of 1:1 results in an image of a subject, say 1 cm long reproducing as 1 cm. long on film or on your digital sensor. In this range we are talking about “a fly’s eye” kind of photography. However, long before we reach 1:1 there is a whole world of creative possibilities with “Close-up” photography. For example, the cover image on my eBook “Twelve Ways…”, is certainly in the realm of close up photography, but would not be considered true “macro”. There are a few more examples in my “A Closer Look” gallery (under “Images” above).
    Close-up photography is a perhaps simpler discipline… it doesn’t require much specialized equipment (you don’t even need a macro lens) It’s mostly about learning a few technical issues, being curious and thinking creatively.

    I’m not sure which discipline you are thinking of, true macro, or close-up photography as I describe here. If you are interested, I am working on another eBook that will be available in a month or so on Close-up photography; the equipment, technical skills and most importantly, on seeing potential subjects creatively.
