Macro photography is known for its intricate detailing that are too minuscule to be captured by the naked eye. The world of macro photography makes it easier for viewers to research and get entertained at the same time. From being able to marvel at the delicate structure of a snowflake to the kaleidoscopic work of colors on a soap bubble, Macro photographers are like the painters of the wild with a set of Canon Macro Lenses in their hands.
Technically, photomacrography (or macro photography) provides us with the ability to capture up and close images of tiny little objects. It opens up a new demographic of the world that previously was unknown to humans. The life-size images of little and beautiful things help us to understand, examine as well as marvel at the true beauty of Mother Nature all around us. Canon Macro Lenses are capable of reproduction rations of at least 1:1.
The best macro photography is captured with DSLRs fitted with “true” macro lenses or extension tubes. However, now many phones can be hooked up in the same setup. Here are some of the very best of macro photography that you shouldn’t miss!
In the naked eyes and to the human world in general, bees are hardworking, buzzing and in some cases frightening insects at work. In this picture, you can actually mark the similarities of the Carpenter Bee with a wasp. Having the size of half to one inch, these bees get its nomenclature from the way it burrows into trees or wooden frames to make its nest. However, the carpenter bees are known to be less sociable than the bumblebees and are also less colourful and hairy. While the males are stingless, the above picture captures a glorious female who might sting if she feels provoked. The above image was taken using a Canon Mark II 5D.
How can such a little natural thing be so rich in beauty and perfection? Well, after all, God lies in Details. Snowflakes come in 35 different shapes, depending on the temperature and humidity. This 4mm composite snowflake was captured using a Helios 44M-5 lens by Alexey Kljatov in Moscow. Since snowflakes melt almost immediately as they touch the surface, this shot was taken in the perfect timing from a woolen jumper by this passionate photographer.
It can be said that almost everyone in the world loves soap bubbles. Bubbles are formed when the water becomes trapped between two layers of soap molecules. They can shrink to the smallest shape, a sphere and this keeps the air inside until the seal is broken. This photo depicts the beautiful kaleidoscope of colors a soap bubble features in itself. These colors are caused by the reflection of light waves back and forth between the layers of soap.
This beautiful image determines the face of an adult dragonfly covered in dew. Once looked closely, you might also catch the ant in the center resting perfectly between the two eyes of the dragonfly. The dragonfly’s eyes are made of thousands of tiny, independent photoreceptors to distinguish between the brightness and colors. This beautiful shot was taken by a Sony ILCE-7RM2.
