Rob Sheppard put this book together to give you solid information about shooting close-ups, yet not require you to spend days reading in order to use it. In this e-book, Sheppard helps you become a better close-up photographer and not simply throw a lot of information at you that is hard to take in and use. Sheppard knows what that is like. He says he spent years trying to learn as much as he could about photography, always afraid of missing the one vital link needed to be a "e;really good Photographer."e; He discovered that such a link is elusive ... and it doesn't exist. It is like the search for the Holy Grail, a noble quest, but something that wastes a lot of time. So, Sheppard took all of those good and bad ideas rattling around in his head and just gives you the good ones. These are ideas based on real experience, Sheppard's long-time experience as a professional nature photographer. Sheppard offers you techniques that he knows really work and can help you become a better close-up photographer. Plus you will see real-world examples of all sorts of subjects in close-up and macro compositions. Topics covered include gear for getting close -- what do you really need? Why both telephotos and wide-angles are important for close-ups and how to use them. How to work a subject to get better shots. How the angle you are to a subject affects how the viewer relates to that subject. The many types of light that can make a close-up better with ideas on their use. And more.
