Macro photography is a type of photography on a much, much smaller scale. it is an extreme close up photos of small subjects both living and inanimate. I enjoy macro because the pictures are both intricate and intimate.  

 

I have taken pictures all my life, but it wasn't until recently that I got into macro photography. This was a defining moment for me, and I have started seeing  things in a new way.

 

There exists at my feet a whole different world, and through my viewfinder I have discovered a tiny world, and it is fascinating to me. I have a different view of the subjects I find to photograph as I lie on my belly or as I'm down on my knees. the subjects I find are so diverse and unique that for me it brings the simple things I see elegant. My goal with macro photography is to show something not normally seen. I also want to to show others the beauty beheld with macro.
