Notes and highlights from the non-fiction books I’ve read since January 2019. Project borrowed from Derek Sivers who has been sharing notes and book summaries on his website since 2007. I also read fiction but will limit notes to non-fiction books, most of which are related to science, natural history, self-improvement, and psychology.
Details of my photo gear and technique for taking macro photos with a white background. I hope to cover everything from taking a photo through to processing and then sharing images. This is a work in progress. Please check back for updates.
Half the joy in photographing wildlife is learning the names and habits of new (to me) species. Field guides help, but perhaps not as much as the citizen science websites and online resources in this list. I also enjoy the social aspect of meeting specialists online who generously help with identifications.
It’s good practice to puzzle out identifications with field guides before asking for confirmation and help online. This growing list of Australian field guides are favourite go-to resources for local knowledge. (Some emphasis on the places we explore most: Queensland and Western Australia.)
