Hi

Nikon Coolpix 5000. Can anyone recommend good books to read on photographing - (Ancient Art) small objects, jewelry, artifacts, etc. with the above camera, I am somewhat at a loss about this, have only had the camera for about a week. I am doing OK as farr as general phtographs are concerned, but this is a whole different ballgame. Thanks for any help anyone can give me. Thanks.

I'd suggest looking for books on lighting more than books about your specific camera - though that can't hurt. The problems are the same for pretty much all cameras, digital or chemical.

Start by taking a look in your local library.

Louise --

A very (!) good book covering Nikons is Peter iNova's ebook "Mastering Nikon Compact Digital Cameras." (You can find ordering information elsewhere here on Steve's.)

I ordered it to go with my CoolPix 995 and have been extremely pleased. The newest (current) version covers the 5000.

iNova covers literally all functions of the cameras. For the 995, he offers quite a few examples and tips for macro photography, so I'd assume the same would be true for the 5000 material.
