When you begin to develop your own style and your unique view of the world, you soon find that no subject is off limits. Here is a unique macro photography idea…
It’s often difficult to truly think outside of the box when it comes to macro photography. But as you learn to see the beauty in ALL of the world around you – the things that you walk by on the streets, the things that other people take for granted, and even the things that people throw away – you soon find that a whole new world of photographic possibilities opens up to you.
In today’s macro photography tutorial, you’ll see professional photographer, Bryan Peterson, using everyday garbage as his subject for some pretty amazing macro photographs.
Maybe you have never considered something as simple and mundane as a bag of trash as being worth your time. If so, we hope that today’s video has helped you to expand your vision a bit. The wonderful thing about macro photography is that it gives you the ability to isolate a small section of something that other people might ignore, or even be repulsed by, and turn the ensuing photograph into a true work of art.
Don’t limit your vision as you seek out new subjects to photography. Take a day where you can simply slow down the pace a bit and discover the hidden beauty that surrounds you. Once you begin this process, you’ll realize that the world you live in is filled to bursting with potential macro photography subjects.
