Whenever I teach macro photography I begin with a statement and two questions. The statement is that I, as a nature photographer, teach macro photography in the wild. The two immediate questions that stem from this statement are:
- What is macro photography?
- Why do I choose to shoot macro photographs in the wild?
In this article, the first of a new series here on dpreview, I’ll try to answer these questions, as well as elaborate a little bit about the essence of macro photography as I see it. I’ll also try to give you enough information about the upcoming articles to keep you interested!
