Macro Compositions

Macro Composition

I am on my way down the mountain to do a lecture at Big Canoe in a few minutes. The lecture is about Macro Photography, and how important it is to treat a macro image as you would a landscape or portrait. Just because the subject is itty bitty, doesn’t mean you don’t place the subject in a location that is pleasing to the viewer. Getting close is one thing, keeping your viewer’s interest is another.
