I love macro photography because, not only can I visit tiny landscapes in real time, but I can revisit it over and over again.
You can look at something up close and personal with your eyes, but the perspective changes dramatically when you put a macro lens on a DSLR.
Depth of field changes considerably, and isolation becomes magnified.
Sometimes I just like to look at the tiny world through the lens without even snapping an image–just because I like to look at this small world as life goes by.
The capture on digital or film is an extra benefit, and a blessing beyond what my mind’s eye saves.
This image was saved on Kodachrome 64 slide film, with a Nikon F2 on a 55mm macro lens.
I loved that transparency film and sometimes miss it. The saturation was amazing.
But I also LOVE digital.
