Book Description

March 31 2009
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.

J'ai vu pour la première fois Bryan Peterson à Adorama tv sur le net. J'aime sa façon simple d'enseigner la photographie.
Plein de petit truc qui font la différence. Si vous comprenez l'anglais, allé le voir sur le net et acheter ces trois livres.
Vous allez avancez votre technique et de ce fait votre art...

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it March 3 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book very helpful. I love macro pictures and this book explained the different ways of just looking at things. The cover picture of the poppies is what drew me to even look at the book. I am pleased with it.
