Photographing Plants and Flowers by Paul Harcourt Davies
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Destined to become the plant photographers bible, this book encourages the reader to 'see' the art and design of the plant and to take photographs that are both accurate visual records and works of creativity. It shows you how to explore the beauty and variety of the natural world - from lichens so tiny they can barely be seen by the naked eye, to the giant gnarled splendour of an ancient beech tree. This book contains everything you need to know to get that perfect shot, including adjusting for variations in light, accurately rendering blues, choosing the right filter and coping with extreme weather conditions. The focus moves from shooting vast landscapes to individual plant portraits, to close-up and macro shots down to photogrpahing subjects on a lightbox to reveal their amazingly delicate structure. Throughout this inspiring and informative book, Paul Harcourt Davies encourages us to see the art and design of the natural world and to take photographs that are not only accurate records of their subjects but also beautiful and unique images.
