Macro frenzy!

After waiting for over 5 years, I managed to acquire an amazing macro lens with 1:1 magnification. It is none other than the Sigma 105mm F2.8. I’ve been playing with it for a few months now and wanted to share some of my recent work.

Enjoy!

So Into You

Flowers are something that have always fascinated me; macro photography opens up a way to explore this passion on an entirely new level. From the intricate patterns ingrained within to the vein-like tributaries on the petals, everything is mesmerizing; you finally get to appreciate what your high-school biology (botany) teacher tried so hard to get into your thick skull. Here are some of my favorite shots; enjoy!

Beauty Within Me

Humans are, by nature, superficial beings and try as we might, we form an initial (instinctual) assessment of a person (or a thing) by the way he, she or it looks. What we need to train ourselves in is to ignore the first impressions, peel off the layers and develop a deeper understanding in order to truly judge someone (or something).

Flowers, however, are beautiful inside and out. Enjoy!
