Up Close and Personal: A Showcase of Macro Photography

In the world of photography, one area brings attention to life’s finer details by focusing in a bit tighter on them. Macro photography gets up close and personal on the object before the lens, and delivers some truly moving and inspiring works of photographic art. Whatever effects are added in post, the base of these images is usually what shines through. A closer look at life through the everyday objects around us.

Today we have a treat for you, that is made up of a variety of pieces from a range of artists. Below is a collection of macro photography that shows you the inspiration that these images can contain. It is interesting to see some of the repeating themes among the pieces. Seemingly themes of choice among those who play in this field. We hope that you find the showcase as inspiring as we do.

  1. Love it. Great job, some of the photos are beautiful. Personal favorites are “It’s Okay Now” on a darker note and “Holding on To You” on the brighter side of the camera eye.
