Or, for that matter, well-regarded online beginner's guides?

I've just recently become interested, and I'm primarily looking for what initial mistakes to avoid, technique basics, etc....

Thanks as always,

The best one I've found, because the writer made it interesting, is this:

John Shaw's Closeups in Nature.

Amphoto - an imprint of Watson-Guptill Publictions New York.

ISBN 0-8174-4051-8
ISBN 0-8174-4052-6 (pbk.)

Picked up quite a lot from that book.

Courtesy of the local public library, I recently read

"Digital Close-Up Photography Q&A" Paul Harcourt Davies

I thought it covered more than the other books I've seen.

Also Paul Harcourt Davies seems to have some very short articles online.


Digital macro photography by Ross Hoddinott was more basic.

John Shaw's Closeups in Nature.

Some pages are shown on Google Books that should give a good idea about the book's content.

Thanks, everyone!  Checking out those titles now.

Asking this (and seeing your responses) caused me to search like a man with his hair on fire for about two hours, and I had no idea that macro was such a specialized subculture, with it's own sub-subcultures (droplet people, bug people, wet bug people, etc...)

Found this and almost thought to myself, if there are folks that good, why even start?  But I'm starting.  If it turns out I like it, I may have to go find a FF.

Reminds me of this cartoon.
