Sunshine’s Macro Monday #33


Spring is in the air which brings more options for macro photography.   Soon there will be flowers blooming in the garden with butterflies fluttering and bees buzzing all over.  For this week, I spent some time in another one of Chicago’s conservatories for my Sunshine’s Macro Monday shot.  How about you?

What is macro photography?  Basically, macro photography is capturing small subjects with larger than life results. A true macro shot could be anything magnified at a ratio of 1:1 or higher.  For the purpose of this challenge, we will not be strict with the 1:1 rule.  I am more interested in people having fun looking for the details, whether it is true macro or close-up photography.  A macro lens is not a must.  Great results can be obtained with whatever zoom lens and camera is on hand.

Everyone is welcome to join in with one or more macro or close-up shots each week.  Create a pingback or add a link in the comment section below.
