I am a big fan of macro photography. I started shooting with a Sony Cyber-shot point and shoot digital camera and ever since, I have liked the art of macro photography. The best part of macro pictures are the minute details that they reveal. I never got a chance to play with macro photography despite owning a DSLR, as I do not own a macro lens. However, I am inspired with all macro photographs that are uploaded on Flickr and elsewhere.
Macro photography is the art of taking close-up pictures that reveal every detail that goes unnoticed by the naked eye. It’s altogether a different world inside. Point-and-shoot digital cameras have good macro capabilities, but for best results you would require a special single-lens reflex camera.
Photography can serve as a nice source of inspiration. Given below is a collection of some truly inspiring and amazing macro photographs from various professional photographers. Go feast your eyes! (You can click on the images to see larger versions of the photographs or find more information of the photographer.)
