Digital Plant Photography
Ever wondered how to get the best out of your camera when taking photographs of plants and fungi, both in the garden and out in the field? This is the book for you. Aimed at photographers wishing to use plants as a rich source of subject matter, and at naturalist gardeners who want to use digital cameras to record plants in as meaningful and attractive a way as possible, Digital Plant Photography delivers the secrets of the professionals to amateur photographers of all levels.
Unlike other guides, this book doesn't focus solely on flowers, though they are covered, but equal prominence is given to seeds, leaves and pollen, wood and trunks, fruits and fungi, as well as to broader compositions. Subject areas include: equipment; basic photographic techniques; gardens and greenhouses; digital processing; patterns and texture; making use of light; time-lapse and high-speed photography.
