Smashing Magazine run a weekly series of articles titled Monday Inspiration. The articles comprise a showcase of unique and creative photography ranging from themes to techniques. A few weeks backs they published a showcase of 25 beautiful examples of macro photography. More from the article:
Macro photography is the art of taking close-up pictures that reveal details which can’t be seen with the naked eye. For example, while we can see the fly on the wall, our eyes aren’t equipped to make out the fine details of the hairs on it’s face. This is where macro photography comes in. It gives us a glimpse into the world of the very small, which goes largely unnoticed by us as we hurriedly shuffle through our day.
In this edition of our Monday Inspiration series we present 25 beautiful examples of macro photography. A round-up of some truly revealing and inspiring macro photographs which are sure to have you marveling at the world around you.
This one is my favorite. Which is yours?
The cat, the moth and the ladybug. All of them are awesome though, sjoe.
The cat photo is awesome. Perhaps you should attempt some macro with Sonic and Tiger? How you would keep them still for 10 seconds is another story…
Hahahaha, I’d have to load them up with Sonic’s pet prozac to get them to sit still. Nice thought though. :-)
I like the dewdrop refraction
that is so awesome! thanks!
Dam I gotta get an awesome camera to pull off something like this! Its really amazing how things are actually built / made off especially insects and animals.
