Just a brief note to say that Photographing Flowers: Exploring Macro Worlds with Harold Davis, published by Focal Press, is now shipping and available from Amazon and Barnes & Nobles. Very exciting for us! We hope you enjoy the book as much as we enjoyed creating it!
As I write in the introduction to Photographing Flowers, “Mostly, flowers aren’t practical. We help them grow for their beauty and poetry. How can we not want to capture this ephemeral and bold stand against entropy and the chaos of the universe?
“If you are interested in photographing flowers too, this book shares my knowledge and experience related to flower photography. I’ll explain what I look for in my floral models, and the techniques I use in the studio and in the garden. By the way, the techniques I’ll show you for making stunning close-ups and macros can be used on any subject matter—not just flowers.”
