delicious detail


Getting close. Digging deep. Diving into the nitty gritty. That's what macro is all about for me. Bringing our subjects under the microscope of our camera lenses and zooming in as much as possible. It allows us to tell a different story about a scene, a very precise story. It can clarify matters, or it can abstract them. What pulls you into the picture determines the story you're about to tell. Are you seeking clarification on a subject? Or are you trying to take something a little more mundane and turning into a curious work of art?

Or just maybe, you want to show one part of a really big picture, like Runner Girl 44's picture below. Or in this case just one piece of the ingredients. Who would have thought she had Brownies in the making…? I certainly didn't! When I saw those ladies in little picture Icon, I had to know more of the story. Imagine my surprise, when I learned they were about to be melted into chocolaty goodness! And I don't know about you, but brownies for me are all about comfort, just like a nice, steamy cup of hot chocolate! What details have you been capturing lately? Let us know!

Love it Holly! Both great shots and love how different they are. I've been shooting a lot negative space photos that focus on just one detail. Focusing on some interesting something then eliminating everything else.
