Diversify Your Macro Portfolio – Part 1 – Abstracts

Posted: June 21, 2015 in Uncategorized
I wrote an article for Outdoor Photographer magazine few years ago called “Diversify Your Macro Portfolio”. It talked about varying the different styles that are available in macro. Over the next six days I explore those various styles, and today is part one, Abstracts.
Macro abstracts are the most challenging and fun to shoot. When I’m in the field my eyes are always scanning for unusual subjects composed of lines, shapes, patterns, colors, and interesting designs. Some macro photographers shoot soft focus images and call them abstracts, but I want an abstract where the viewer has to put some thought into what they are looking at. I want to maximize my depth of field to bring it all in focus, so I set my f/stop in the highest ranges.
