Discover the intimate details of something unexpected, and share your images with us.
“If your photographs aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.” — Robert Capa
If you’ve followed my previous photo challenges, you’ll know that I am enamored with nature. I love the exotic and the mundane, the wondrous and the earthy. One of my favorite things about nature is her details — the intricate vascular system of a leaf, the wispy patterns in clouds at sunset, or luminous beads of dew on the delicate filaments of a dandelion seed. When distilled down to the details, a weed becomes a lovely piece of art.
Fun Fact: This image was shot with my phone and an inexpensive clip-on macro lens called an olloclip. You don’t need fancy equipment to capture tiny details!
For this week’s challenge, try to look past the big picture and take a more intimate approach. Zoom in on details in unexpected places — it can be something from the natural world, or it can be human-made. We’re excited to see what you find with your lens.
