Improving your Outdoor Macro Photography Skills
You can take impressive macro photographs of just about anything. We’ve seen amazing shots of subjects ranging from snowflakes to watch machinery, and everything in between. It’s this diversity of potential subjects that makes macro photography such an enjoyable pastime for so many people. You can literally shoot every, single day and never run out of things to photograph.
However, despite all the variety of subjects available, it is often those outdoor macro photography subjects – insects, spiders, butterflies, flowers and plants – that remain some of the most popular macro photography subjects for photographers of all levels. And there’s more to shooting great nature macro photos than simply walking outside and randomly clicking away. Today, we are sharing a video featuring Canadian photographer, Don Komarechka.
