R.Thompson. Routledge 2017


This stunning new title by acclaimed photographer Robert Thompson (Close-up & Macro: A Photographer’s Guide) is OUT NOW and we have it IN STOCK for quick dispatch!


The book covers a wide range of macro photography themes, and not just moths and butterflies as you may be expecting! Plants, reptiles and amphibians, along with many animal subjects, are also meticulously covered throughout the book’s 320 beautifully presented pages, this title will appeal to both the experienced and inexperienced photographer.


 “Focusing on field craft techniques for macro and close-up photography, Thompson covers the vital but often overlooked skills necessary to achieve consistent professional results in the field. Case studies covering a broad and often challenging group of subjects from the seashore to your back garden form the core of the lavishly illustrated book.


Biology, life history, subject behaviour and ethics along with best practice approaches are discussed in detail and underpinned with photographic tips. The book is divided into four sections—Digital Fundamentals, Fieldcraft & Methodology, Portfolio Case Studies and Digital Workflow & Presentation—covering the full photographic process from capture through to editing, captioning, development and storage are discussed.


Moving beyond the surface-level approach to macro instruction, this book provides readers with techniques that work in the field. Illustrated with over 250 of the author's own inspiring images, this publication is a must for photographers, naturalists and anyone interested in improving their macro skills in the field”
