Someone once said, “All great things are only a number of small things that have carefully been collected together.”
When we take a picture of a mountain, a garden, a farm or the sea, we sometimes overlook the small flowers, dewdrops, rocks, pebbles, animals and insects that also, along with others make up these beautiful landscapes.
A macro photograph is a style that focuses completely on one subject. Say you are taking a flower; everything else other than the flower is left blurred. Meaning, the depth of field is narrow.
For a macro photograph, either the lens is used to the optimal to get a large image of the subject or the photographer simply gets as close to the subject as possible.
In my experience, a macro photo that I just clicked typically leaves me getting all philosophical, thinking about life, God, creation, existence, and so on.. 🙂
