About the Book
Nick Thomas has been a fly fisher, fly tyer and photographer for more than fifty years. His landscape, wildlife and fishing photography have featured in a wide range of publications and he is a regular contributor to a number of print and online fly-fishing and fly-tying magazines. Imaging Imitations describes his fly photography methods and techniques, many of which he has developed himself. The book covers simple techniques that can be used by anyone wanting to take better fly photographs, including using different types of cameras, achieving good lighting and invisible methods for holding flies. Other chapters cover more complex techniques for photographing flies under water or floating, focus stacking and making composite images. The book also includes a number of case studies describing how a range of images used in different publications were created.
