"Spring is a rather spectacular season in many regards, but certainly from a visual perspective. With so much bursting into life, one of the most incredible ways to photograph it is by way of macro photography. Macro photography, of course, is the art of photographing objects extremely close-up. Great macro subjects are usually smaller objects, but sometimes they are simply smaller pieces of a larger subject, magnified and showcased. Striking subjects to photograph include flowers, leaves, bugs, raindrops, jewelry, detailed textures and patterns, eyes, baby fingers and toes - the list goes on and on. Basically, everyday objects can look far more striking when photographed at a 1 to 1 ratio. That being said, there can be challenges involved in macro photography."
