Macro photography (2)
As I promised last time (here), here are some more macro pictures taken with my macro lens for my phone:
A shirt sounds really boring but, just as with anything, it becomes more and more fascinating the closer you look at it! The macro lens allows you to delve into the small world for a bit and think about how these small fibres make up a whole shirt.
Now this is awesome: it’s a section of leaf which has had its typical properties taken away, no green, no curved shape. All that is left of it is the structure that held it all together, think of an old castle, it used to have floors and a roof but they were wooden and it has all rotten away, the stone structure is all that remains. The structure is where all the nutrients and the water would have travelled to get around the leaf.
This is it close up. Here you can see the structure much more clearly, isn’t nature amazing?
The only downside about this macro lens is that the only bit that is properly in focus is directly in the centre…
This isn’t as interesting but still quite cool, it’s some wicker that’s been painted and to make it stay has been filled in with what I can only think is plaster. From further away the wicker looks quite nice but here you can see what a messy job it was (and not very well done either).
This isn’t in as good focus as the other ones but I thought I might as well show it anyway.
I’m probably not going to do the next post on macro photography (an OS maybe?) but if I do find anything else I’ll post it.
