Macro Photography

“Macro Photography” is a phrase which immediately takes me back to summer days spent eyeballing butterflies, dragonflies and anything else I can find.  What I love about this kind of photography is that it allows me to see into a macro-world too small for for human eyesight to enjoy.

My favourite Photography quote is from the  American photographer, Berenice Abbott (1898- 1991), who stated simply:

Photography helps people to see

In this gallery of images taken with my macro lens I’ve included couple of shots of “bigger things’ as the  100mm works well for any kind of close up, I think.

    Thank you. Your challenges keep me on my toes. I “redid” some of these by running them through LUMINAR noise reduction .
