What makes a great photo? An image that opens your eyes to something you might never have noticed before. That’s why photographers have always loved to go close up. And digital cameras—with their reticulating LCD panels that fold out and make it possible to see a subject from odd angles—make it easier than ever to go where other cameras never could before. Expert photographer Joseph Meehan explains every aspect of the art of close-up digital photography, with comprehensive information on cameras, accessories, and lighting; tactical approaches for different subjects; in-depth discussions of black and white; and ideas for enhancing the image with a computer. And he presents image-rich gallery sections of the works of well-known photographers.
Joseph Meehan has been a professional photographer, writer, and teacher for over 30 years. The author of more than 20 books on technique, he has also written articles and columns for numerous major magazines, including Popular Photography, Photographic Magazine, Outdoor Photography, and Camera and Darkroom.
