"In his sixth book, renowned photographer, popular instructor, and best-selling author Bryan Peterson challenges and inspires us to see close-up photography in new ways when we view it through his eyes. You' ve seen the dewdrops, but what about dewdrops on a bird' s wing or raindrops on a car windshield? You' ve seen the bumblebees on vibrant flowers, but what about the fluid edge of just one petal or the colorful rusting metal at industrial sites? Even when Peterson does capture the more traditional subjects, it's done in untraditional ways - and often with minimal specialized equipment! Most important, he moves beyond the commonplace to inspire new ways of getting close, using your lenses, and discovering unconventional subjects."

Bryan Peterson writes well and gives clear examples to illustrate his points. I have looked at several of his other books and they are equally good. They are especially good for the beginning photographer.

Good for beginning photographers. Experienced photographers will be disappointed.
