Small wonders (macro) – APOY 2017

Small wonders (macro) – APOY 2017

Macro photography offers you the opportunity to explore the hidden elements of nature that would otherwise remain hidden from the naked eye. Subjects such as plants are a beautiful canvas of colour, shape and texture, and getting in close can reveal how all these disparate elements function together to form beautiful subjects. And flowers are, of course, an endless goldmine for photographers. We’re in the warmer months of the year now, meaning that your garden and local park are awash with beds of vivid colour.

However, we don’t just want you to focus on plants and flowers – we also want to see your macro images of the insects and arachnids that you often find buzzing and crawling around your garden and local green spaces. Insects – whether they be wasps, ladybirds, bees or beetles – make truly fascinating subjects for photography, and we often forget just how incredible (and what great photo subjects) they are.
