About the Author
Harold Davis is an award-winning professional photographer. He is the best-selling author of more than 30 books and writes on many photo blogs. He has been a software engineer, an enterprise technology consultant, and an Internet company executive. Photographic adventures and assignments have taken him across the Brooks Range, the northernmost mountains in Alaska. He has photographed the World Trade Towers, hanging out of a small plane, followed in the footsteps of Seneca Ray Stoddard, a 19th-century photographer of the Adirondacks, and created human interest photo stories about the residents of Love Canal, an environmental disaster area. Harold is well known for his night photography and experimental ultra-long exposure techniques, use of vibrant, saturated colors in landscape compositions, and beautiful creative floral imagery. He is inspired by the flowers in his garden, hiking in the wilderness, and the work of great artists and photographers including M.C. Escher, Monet, van Gogh, and Edward Weston.

Book: Photographing Waterdrops: Exploring Macro Worlds with Harold Davis is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Photo quality isn't that good I found most of pictures illustrated on the books are not that stunning color, nor a very sharp focused picture. Color of most picture looks little dim, and not vivid enough.
