With a close-up camera lens, shutterbugs can capture a landscape in a water droplet, a dragon's face in a dragonfly, an alien planet in a backyard fungus, or a futuristic civilization in a computer circuit board. The magic field of macro photography comes alive through digital cameras and Photoshop programs, as simple instructions combine with jargon-busting tips to demonstrate each essential technique. More than 200 full-color photos and 750 illustrations showcase the possibilities for making spectacular images with ordinary equipment.
