Philippe Martin creates his close-ups by "stacking" images inside his computer. To create one picture, he takes dozens of photographs, each time focusing the camera on a slightly different part of the subject. Then, using computer software, he combines the images into one perfectly focused composite image. Finally, he cleans up the image pixel by pixel.

The result is almost three-dimensional photographs of animals and plants, with such sharpness and brilliance that they appear to leap from the page.

Creatures Close Up includes a selection of amazing photographs of flora and fauna -- snakes, frogs, insects, spiders, lizards and other creatures. Many of these creatures are on the endangered species list in Madagascar, where Martin spent a month shooting in the rainforest.

These large, hyper-realistic images bring the viewer face to face with tiny creatures and plants, where the smallest details can be examined. This is nature photography as never seen before. It will fascinate children of all ages and a wide range of interests.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Wow! You won't believe your eyes when you see the close-up photos of a mouse, a frog, a spider, a salamander, a lizard and many other small creatures. Is that what they REALLY look like? ** Recommended for ages 6 to 12 years.
