Overview

Close-up photography is one of the most fascinating areas in photography. This illustrated guide will take the reader on a journey into the wonderful world of small, smaller, and smallest objects and show him how he can capture their beauty with photographic images. Each step of the way will be carefully explained; how to choose the right equipment, how to use ambient light or create artificial lighting, and how to conceptualize and frame the perfect shot.

Whereas the nature photographer is exploring facets and structures in his environment, the "table top photographer" is trying to shoot a small object, a product, or a small treasure for display on the web (e.g., eBay) or in print. Here, the choice of the appropriate lighting and backdrop, and the creative use of the camera's features are key to a perfect image.

Cyrill Harnischmacher explains all aspects of close-up shooting for both inside the studio, as well as outdoors. This book is filled with beautifully illustrated examples and detailed instructions on how to set up a system and workflow for successful close-up photography.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Close-up photography is an astonishing genre crossing both the scientific and the artistic. Through it, the minute and fleeting world of flowers, insects, and everyday household objects can become strange and magnificent in its detail. Photographer and designer Harnischmacher's guiding philosophy here is that the best close-up work can be done in the camera with little if any manipulation of images by software. The book provides detailed and precise information on the technical aspects of cameras, lenses, tripods, filters, and lighting. Highly recommended for the motivated photographer. For a more elementary, software-based approach, see John Clements's A Comprehensive Guide to Digital Close-Up Photography.
