This 27cm x 25cm, 160 page book offers an insight into flower photography by award winning gardens photographer Clive Nichols. Over the past 15 years Clive has been commissioned to photograph the world's finest gardens and flowers for calendars, books and magazines. In doing so he has amassed a collection of over 35,000 images and a huge amount of knowledge which he shares in this book.
A quick flick through in a bookstore could leave you thinking this is a coffee table book for those who appreciate gardening, but read a few paragraphs from any page and you'll soon see the invaluable tips to help you become a better flower photographer.
Well illustrated chapters cover everything from using light, colour and form to ensure graphical shots through to subject and placement for more habitat based images. And what makes this book special is that Clive also shares the technical details on every photo so you can see what camera, lens, film and exposure was used. I've talked to many pros who are quite snobbish about this saying that technical detail is not important. But experience over the years from reader feedback suggests it is! Nice one Clive. Theres a small section on digital too with some tips on enhancing, but don't expect too much Photoshop magic, this is more about finding the subject and using light or camera techniques to record the world of flowers and gardens naturally.
