    Little subjects Great Photos

    This Book gets you looking at everything as a potenial subject. I used an old rusty tile trowel for different shots. I don't just give a passing glance at plants, insects, or old discards anymore, instead I find myself seeing the potenial for a unique photo op. If you are looking for new subjects this book will show you they have been right in front of you all the time.

    Disappointing for technical content

    I should have looked closer before buying this book. The book has some ideas for subjects for macro photography, but not much more. There are also some annoying things about the book.
    - The text frequently talks about pictures on a different page. Might sound trivial, but it gets to be real annoying to have to read the text and then flip the page to see the picture.
    - Most of the pictures selected by the author don't appeal to me. That may be a matter of style.
    - The book is very lite on technical detail, like lighting. It mentions several techniques, but generally doesn't go into any detail.
    - A section is devoted to digital darkroom, that is so basic it is for all purposes useless.

    Given the price of the book, I didn't get anywhere near the value out of it I expected.
