A world exists where few take time to look. A world of complex patterns and details. A world that, I’m finding, can be captured by camera.
Macro photography has existed for a long time and incredible photos have been taken and shared over the years, especially with the advent of digital photography and increasingly accurate lenses. Inspired by those minuscule worlds and those who’ve recorded them, I wanted to embrace the form and try my own hand at macro photography, but with a basic 50mm lens.
I found that being in the right place at the right time is just as important as fancy equipment. The bark mushrooms I photographed were not there four days later. And the dew in the feather? It floated by me at the right moment.
