Rather than rewrite one of my favorite articles on close-up photography, I thought I'd just give you the link. Enjoy!
The bottom photograph here is not in the article. It shows me practicing my close-up techniques on a silk butterfly in my kitchen. All that practicing paid off - because as always, practice makes perfect.
For more of my butterfly (the living kind) pictures, check out my book, Flying Flowers.
Hey, if you know a nature lover, the book might make a nice gift.
