Uncommon View of Common Objects

posted in: Photo Stories | 18

After being allured by photography, I always liked to capture Landscapes and Portraits. With time and experience I also started Macro photography. In the early days I used to do macro photography by using close-up filters and used to be satisfied with the results. However, looking at the quality of images that I got by using accessories to shoot Macros, I always yearned for an actual macro lens so that I could shoot better quality Macro photos. Eventually I got a 90mm f/2.8 Macro lens that drove me in to serious Macro photography.

In my quest for getting good macro photos I went to the botanical garden of Godavari and some nurseries to take photos of butterflies, insects and colorful flowers with my new macro lens. But time sometimes leads us down new paths towards new directions and different dimensions. As time passes I began to question myself: “Is macro photography only about butterflies, insects and flowers?” And this question at the back of my mind motivated me to utilize the macro lens in a different way than I had been doing.

Here, I have a few shots to share with you where I tried a different form of Macro Photography. Any feedback and constructive criticism will be highly appreciated.

      Yes Sangesh, Macro Photography is one of the mostly liked genres in photography by the viewers. But most of us don’t do it because it needs a special & different lens. I definitely urge you to have a Macro Lens ASAP. What I love in Macro photography is that we can capture whatever we see from our home to outside. Another major advantage of owning macro lens is, it works as a Fixed/ Prime Portrait or even a Fixed Tele Lens.
