Overview

Ever wondered how to get the best from your camera when taking photographs of plants and fungi in the garden or out in the field? Then this is the book for you. This beautifully illustrated guide is aimed both at photographers wishing to use plants as a rich source of subject matter, and at naturalist gardeners who want to use digital cameras to record plants in a meaningful yet attractive way. Numerous practical skills are clearly explained, from basic photography to more complex time-lapse and high-speed techniques. Unlike other guides, this book does not focus solely on flowers; equal prominence is given to seeds, leaves, pollen, wood and trunks, as well as to broader compositions. Digital Plant Photography delivers the secrets of the professionals to the amateur photographer.
