Fine Art Flower Photography: Creative Techniques and the Art of Observation, 2nd Edition based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
I highly recommend this book who wants to learn more about taking pictures of plants. He tells you how he shot the flowers. He also explains how he manipulated them in Photoshop afterwords. The pictures are beautiful as well and he tells you how to replicate the shot.
Average quality of writing about photography. Some interesting ideas that can be pursued but most photographs were not ready to be published as best examples of fine art.
First this book is a series of case studies not a treatise on flower photography, Second almost half the book is devoted to blurs or focus stacking. Not as useful for straight out flower photography as I wanted.
