I consider macro photography to be more of an inward looking exercise, an activity that requires one to slow down and pay attention to details, very small details. It was the perfect type of photography to take up when most of Europe was in lockdown from February to May 2020, and many people were stuck at home with plenty of time on their hands. But macro photography is not something you take lightly. It is a photography art that requires patience and steady hands. There’s also a lot of technique involved and different types of subject to focus on. Below are some examples of my attempt at this subject.
