How to use your Camera Close Up – O. R. Croy, The Focal Press 1961

Toronto. With a growing interest in close-up photography, in July of 1979 I bought a used copy of Dr Otto Croy’s ¬†book Camera Close-up¬†originally published in England and America by Focal Press of England in 1961. L. A. Mannheim translated the 1960 German book for the Focal Press.

This small book with its line drawings and monochrome plates gives excellent advice and guidance for the aspiring close-up photographer.

Much of the advice is still relevant in today’s digital world. When published the majority of book illustrations and photographs were monochrome.
