How to Take Creative Macro Photography of Letters
We live in a world that is filled with letters and words. From the signs that we see on the roadways to the text that fills up the books that we read, we are surrounded by the written word at nearly every moment of our lives. In fact, we see so much text on a daily basis that it is easy to take all those letters and words for granted. After all, who has time to stop and pay attention to another sign, book cover or run-of-the-mill printed message?
Well, if you are a macro photographer you already know that you have to look at the world a bit differently than most folks do. In fact, macro photographers take great pride in noticing the hidden beauty in everyday, mundane subjects, and revealing that beauty to the world in the form of their photographs. Take a look at this creative macro photography tutorial by Bryan Peterson on how to take very creative photographs of letters and words to see what we mean…
When you take the approach that you just learned here, it’s easy to see how simple it is to capture very interesting, thought provoking photographs of all the letters and words that fill up the world that we live in. We think that once you have practiced this basic exercise in composition and creativity a few times, that you will never look at another sign or printed word the same way again; you’ll always be thinking of how you could use regular, everyday words and letters as subjects for your next photo shoot!
There really is beauty to be found in just about everything that we come in contact with. It is your duty, as a macro photographer, to notice that beauty, capture it with your DSLR and then to share the results with your audience!
