With a close-up camera lens, shutterbugs can capture a landscape in a water droplet, a dragon’s face in a dragonfly, an alien planet in a backyard fungus, or a futuristic civilization in a computer circuit board. The magic field of macro photography comes alive through digital cameras and Photoshop programs, as simple instructions combine with jargon-busting tips to demonstrate each essential technique. Over 200 full-color photos and 750 illustrations showcase the possibilities for making spectacular images with ordinary equipment. Besides ideas for making framed photos, special sections show how to create greeting cards, stationery, and other practical items and gifts.

Talk about Digital Macro Photography

I've looked at many of the recent books on digital macro photography, and this is the only one that devotes most of its space to macro. Too many that claim to be about macro or close up photography (e.g. "The Magic of ..." by Meehan) largely rehash guides to digital photography in general. Hoddinott does some of that too. I could have done without the "post processing" chapter at the end. But fortunately Hoddinott keeps the book mostly focussed on the subject promised in its title. He gives sensible advice that ranges from the moderately technical to the openly mundane. The latter includes surprisingly helpful suggestions about what time of day and where to find subjects suitable for macro. This is an introductory book that even pros could learn a few things from. One of the most unusual and admirable features: he shows his own mistakes and how he corrected them (though I suspect the mistakes were deliberate). Finally, his own photos (often of quite ordinary subjects)are imaginative, some even stunning.

I bought this book expecting it to be full of macro techniques, information on lighting beyond a vague description of flashes available, and other specialized techniques of interest to serious macro photographers. It is NOT.
The information on macro photography that's included is really basic, and so brief as to be easily missed. If you have ever taken a closeup or own a macro lens, this book will be of no use to you.

IF this were re-titled as an introduction to digital photography for absolute beginners, I would recommend it. If you are just starting with your first camera, and know little more than pressing the shutter, this is the book for you. Almost half of the book is consumed with basic introductory material exploring such issues as the difference between a point and shoot and a SLR.

I found this book to be a very thorough guide to macro photogrphy.The author covers equipment, accessories, techniques and several different specialties in macro photography such as, still-life, insects, butterflies, dragonflies etc.. He then covers post-camera processing with Photoshop. The author mainly describes macro photography with DSLR cameras and only mentions point and shoot cameras near the front of the book. He specifically uses Nikon cameras when describing techniques throughout the book. These techniques, however, translate easily to other DSLR cameras such as Canon. I found the book helpful in my efforts to get into macro photography.

Not what I hoped for/expected. I found out later 90% of Macro is normal photography.

This book is really terrible. I was looking for a book that would delve into the challenges of macro photography, technique and implementation of macro lenses and flash combination to produce true macro (life-size) images.

This book does not do any of this. In fact it spends the first 60 pages talking about camera types and gear. Do you really need to know about point and shoot cameras and how a single lens reflex camera works if you are seriously researching macro photography technique? This book should be titled "A broad overview of photography and equipment you might find."

This book does not even cover macro photography very well. There are a few brilliant macro shots but 80% of the photographs are not even true macro. They are between 1/10 life-size and 1x. If anything it is a simple collection of close up shots. Many of the shots are not even that good.

If you are looking for a visually appealing book that you can breeze through in 40 minutes and wonder why you spent $18 on it then this book is for you.

If you are a photographer looking for information on growing your "MACRO" photography technique.... look elsewhere and don't waste your money.

I would not even recommend this book to someone just getting into photography. There are better entry level books out there.

I think the knowledge in this book is so so... I don't really suggested it!
Saimath
It gave me good tips and information.
I enjoyed the book but it was not what I had expected. I think it will be a good reference book for me to return to now and then.
