Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #34: Close-Up

Why close up photography? One of photographers explains, “Taking images close-up is a fun way to rethink items we see every day, or explore something you think you know well, like your backyard.”

When you get a close-up shot, you are able to appreciate the unexpected details and lovely shapes of petals.

“If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.”

~ Robert Capa

These morning raindrops were captured last spring in my backyard:

Every once a while, I get a close-up photo of a horse. Like Mr. B, Ms. W is gentle, patient, and cooperative. I captured her eye with my 60mm macro lens.

Take a look of the beautiful jewels Ann-Christine found in her abandoned flower pot. She reminds us, “You certainly don’t have to buy a macro lens – most cameras are good at close-ups. If you have a smartphone/android/iPhone – you will be surprised how easily you get good results.” Thank you, Ann-Christine for the inspiring challenge theme.

  1. When we spent time at our summer cottage in Maine, I always tried to get closeups of butterflies on flowers…very difficult for me at least. To someone like you, closeups don’t seem to be a challenge. Love the droplets of water shot.
