Photography and art my way, through my eyes to yours

Macroapproaching

I tend to try and stay away from macro because I feel like it’s the “thing” everyone is doing and I feel like it’s pretty easy to make a picture look “artsy” with this approach.  Maybe i’m taking things a bit to far,  but it’s only to make myself stand out from the crowd.

Though I won’t lie and say I don’t use macro, because it’s something fun to do and sometimes its the way to get the best picture, especially if your trying to focus on texture and sometimes pattern.   You can also get a very foreshortened  effect and distortion in size of objects, which can be desirable.

For this picture I just had an itch to take such a photo, the weather and time weren’t allowing me to go outside to do so.   I don’t think it’s a great photo, but I haven’t posted in some days, and it was fun trying this.wires

  1. I can’t say that I’ve ever thought of macro photography from the artistic side of it. I simply like seeing things very much up close. It’s like there is an entire other world we don’t see unless we can photograph it.
