Close up and macro are fascinating areas of photography and ones that you can shoot almost anywhere, even in your garden if you are lucky enough to have one.
In this eBook Nina looks at the equipment options and techniques that are needed to get great results for both close up, which can even be shot easily with the kit lens that comes with your camera, through to macro photography where more specialist techniques and equipment will be required.

Nina looks at the settings that are used, how the magnifications affect the settings and techniques that are needed and how some affordable accessories can be used to avoid the expense of a macro lens.

Nina also takes a look at framing, lighting and exposure and shows how great images can be obtained in this fascinating field of photography.
