Closeup Shooting: A Guide to Closeup, Tabletop, and Macro Photography

New release by Rocky Nook

Santa Barbara, CA, May 2, 2007 – Closeup photography is one of the most fascinating photographic genres. “Closeup Shooting: A Guide to Closeup, Tabletop, and Macro Photography” takes the reader on a journey into this fascinating world of small, smaller, and smallest objects, and shows how to capture their beauty with photographic images. Each step of the way is carefully explained; choosing the right equipment, using ambient or artificial lighting, and conceptualizing and framing the perfect shot.

The “table top photographer” is trying to shoot a small object, a product, or a tiny treasure for display on the web (e.g., eBay) or in print. This book teaches the importance of choosing the appropriate lighting and backdrop, as well as the creative use of the camera’s features, which are key to getting a perfect image.

Cyrill Harnischmacher explains all aspects of closeup shooting for inside the studio, as well as outdoors. This book is filled with beautifully illustrated examples and detailed instructions on how to set up a system and workflow for successful close-up photography.

Filled with captivating, beautiful pictures that make this book not only educational for the photography enthusiast, but also worthy of finding a place on your coffee table where it will be enjoyed by all.
