Exploring Photography… Macro
Macro photography is simply close-up photography. When taking macro photos there are many technical considerations like lenses, depth of field and lighting that need to be address. Like wildlife photography macro photography takes patience, especially when photographing live subjects.
The art of macro photography is making the subjects interesting and artistic. It should also be an “eye opening” experience, revealing what is seldom seen by the naked eye.
Fine art photographs should be preserved by mounting on acid-free backing, and framed behind UV glass. Photographs should be kept out of direct sunlight to prevent damage to the image.
Below are some wonderful macro photographs. As with all of my featured art/artists these are pieces I would purchase for myself or as a gift.
