The Michigan Gardener

Numerous practical skills are clearly explained, from basic photography to more complex time-lapse and high speed techniques. The author discusses the confusing symbols and menu choices that come along with a digital camera. Unlike some other guides, this book does not focus solely on flowers; equal prominence is given to seeds, leaves, pollen, wood and trunks. Containing 450 images with substantial captions, the book strikes a balance between the technical side and the compositional. Gardeners who are amateur photographers receive the professional tips they need to take successful photos.
