Techniques for the Advanced Amateur and Professional
Paperback ISBN: 0896580695
Photographing Wildflowers represents the first opportunity to learn from the Blacklocks. The book progresses logically through the steps of finding a subject, choosing equipment, depth of field and focusing exposure, the aesthetics of different types of light, ways to control light, and recording information in a way that will help you learn. In the chapter on the forest floor, Craig and Nadine present a wealth of technical and aesthetic tips on photographing nonflower closeup subjects ranging from mushrooms to ice. This is a book that will gently ease the reader along to a firm grasp of the physics of closeup photography, while giving the specific techniques that have long made the Blacklocks images stand out.
