About this title

Synopsis:

Macrophotography allows for the capture of small photographic subjects in life size or larger magnification, allowing viewers to experience the world around them in a way that is simple not possible with the naked eye. With a magnified view, we can see the distinctive make-up of an insect, animal, or flower--its texture, details, and subject features that we might otherwise be completely unaware of.

In this unique book, Dennis Quinn turns his macro lenses upon the natural world and teaches readers to choose and use the tools they need to capture magical images of all manner of bugs, flowers, reptiles, and more. In each of the 60 sections in this beautifully illustrated book, Quinn details the tricks of the trade. You'll learn where to find your subjects, how to make sure that the background adds to the overall impact of the image, how to track insects in flight, and other skills that will increase your odds of capturing technically strong, visually rewarding shots. In each section, you'll see 1 to 3 images of a unique subject and will get detailed instruction as to how Quinn shot the image--including the equipment used, settings chosen, the camera angle, and more.

There's more to this book than instructional photographic text. In each of the 60 discrete sections, Quinn provides fascinating tidbits about each animate object--describing the life cycle, feeding habits, mating rituals, breeding, and much more--or characteristics of botanical subjects.

This book provides an inspiring and enlightening blend of photographic technique and fascinating science lessons. It is perfect for serious amateur photographers, wildlife/landscape photography enthusiasts, and even those whose "bread and butter" shots are in another genre completely. The book is sure to impress.

About the Author:

Dennis Quinn is a Connecticut native, growing up just outside the city limits of New Haven. His interest in the natural world stem back to his early childhood days where he spent much of his time observing wildlife in the field. He earned a Master of Arts degree from Central Connecticut State University in Ecology and Environmental Science and shortly thereafter founded the environmental consulting firm CTHerpConsultant, LLC specializing in amphibian and reptile research, conservation and preservation.

He is active in environmental education through his Adjunct Instructor position at Naugatuck Valley Community College, where he teaches General Zoology and Field Biology. Combining his scientific career with photography, Dennis created ctherpetology.com, a website which serves as a photographic atlas for the identification of Connecticut’s amphibians and reptiles. Capturing images that ignited interest and questions from viewers, Dennis quickly realized the value of photography in his pursuits of conservation, and now shoots the macro-world to shed light on the astounding species diversity that surrounds our daily life.

Dennis actively displays his photographs in galleries, nature centers and art festivals and is published in various wildlife magazines, newspapers, educational pamphlets and scientific documents. He is active on social media and has won image awards in online gallery contests.
