There are many things around us that are thought to be ordinary just because we usually see them anywhere and they do not have something new to be shown to us.

Macro photography is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects and living organisms like insects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size.

Enjoy the beauty of Nature !

 

P.s: on the photographer’s websites more incredible pictures :)

Shikhei Goh (Indonesia)

My Name Is Shikhei Goh. I was born in Dabo (Riau Islands) and now I live in Batam Island, an industrial island about 45 minutes by boat from singapore. I started taking pictures using a DSLR in March 2011. I had tried taking pictures of many things but I really have a great passion for Macro photography and I can say I am a macro addict.

I have always said to myself that I must and I can make great photos. After countless of trials and errors, explorations, and criticisms I can say that I am happy enough for what I have achieved now. However, I will keep on exploring as there are always new things in macro photography.

Vyacheslav Mishchenko (Ukraine)

I have been interested in photography since childhood.

My father worked as a freelance photographer for the local newspapers. I observed his art and learnt it. My family used to spend a lot of weekends camping in a beautiful forest. Thus photography and nature naturally entered my life.
I took my first macro shot when I was 10 years old. In those days I used to use an analog camera.

After getting married and having children, photography went by the wayside. Most of the time I spent on painting.

With the advent of digital photography I have renewed my passion for photography and have began to engage in macro very seriously.
