Great book I just received this book and love it. The fact that the photos have camera settings next to them is quite helpful. There are many fantastic photos that challenge me in my efforts to document what most people never see in this world we inhabit. I highly recommend this book although to master macro you will have to be very patient and practice ,practice , and practice some more.

Excellent reference I have recently read 3 books on taking photographs with my new micro 4/3 digital camera, and this was the easiest to comprehend and learn from. It concentrates on things I really need to know and did not waste my time, yet it was relatively complete.

A visually rich guide to photographing small objects I bought this book for me to help my macro photography. The bustle of the “holiday season” has kept me from doing much with it, but that’s not the book’s fault! Great photo examples and explanations of how they were achieved.
