Is Close Up / Macro Photography Dangerous?
Macro photography and close up photography of insects/animals/nature can be quite dangerous if you are not careful of your subject and surroundings. As macro / close up photographers, we are all programmed to get up close and personal with our subjects to try to get the perfect shot. Sometimes we are drawn into our own little world and we forget about the dangers of some of our subjects (eg. wasps, bees, spiders, snakes, etc) and the environment that they are in (eg. slippery surfaces).
More importantly, we need to give our subjects the respect that it deserves. The video below acts as a reminder to us all on why we need to be careful when we are out and about having fun with macro / close up photography.
Wasn’t that person lucky? Stay safe everyone… Remember to take care when you are wandering around on your next macro photography / close up photography trip. Please remind your family and friends by sharing this post with them.
