Photograph by GuruShots member Otto Mercik – Monochrome Macro Challenge
Along with being aware of your composition, don’t be afraid to get creative when you’re shooting in macro. The whole purpose of macro is to show viewers the beauty in the everyday. Don’t be afraid to shoot your subject from interesting angles in order to provide an even newer perspective on everyday nature.
The photographer of this image could have easily shot this insect from above, but decided to literally showcase it head-on, providing more detail and intimacy.
