Review of the book Close-Up and Macro Photography

Tracey Hallett

Macro photography remains ever popular because it's accessible. Once you have the equipment needed to get up close and personal there's an endless variety of subjects all around us. Tracey Hallett's book is small enough to fit in a pocket or camera bag, so you can take out in the field with you, adding to its utility. It covers the expected run of topics - equipment, camera basics such as ISO, shutter speeds and focusing, before moving on to visual compositional skills and ending with a few pages on processing. The text is informative and easy to understand while the pictures, which are accompanied by full shooting data, range from good to outstanding.


If you're interested in macro and want an up-to date book on the subject that you can take out with then you'll find this a good choice.
