Learn how to create unusual and striking close-up images both in the field and in your own backyard with this fun, practical, ebook by Charles Needle.

Acclaimed fine art photographer and workshop instructor, Charles Needle, who specializes in creative close-ups and finding the “art of nature,” guides you through all the necessary steps to discover hidden treasures in tiny worlds that are ordinarily overlooked by the human eye and capture them with heart and vision.

Using step-by-step illustration photos, stunning full-color examples, and clear understandable text, Charles shares professional tips and techniques that will help you take your image-making from ordinary to extraordinary.

  • Equipment, lighting, and fill-flash.
  • Composition and visual design.
  • Depth-of-field and selective-focus macro.
  • Wide-angle macro.
  • Creative macro montage techniques.

There’s even a lengthy chapter on how you can make unique extraordinary close-up images right in your own backyard or on your kitchen table, including setups with textured glass, iridescent glass, mylar and water droplets.
