My Dad started to capture the beauty and wonders in very small things like moss and plant seeds. I think his work is splendid. Recently he uses a photographing technique called “stacking”. He combines several macro images with different levels of focus depth. This allows for a wide range of focus on a very small object and hence, it gives the viewer the opportunity to see some unexpected beauty.
