Macro Photography or close-up Photography is usually a shot of very small subjects. Macro photography is the art of taking close-up pictures of a subject that reveal additional details and features which can’t be seen with our own naked eyes. In macro photography, the size of the subject in the image is larger than the size of the subject in real life. For example, a ladybird is always bigger in photos than in its real life size. Or when we look at a fly, while we can see the fly on the wall, our naked eyes aren’t detailed enough to explore the fine details of the thousands of lenses on its eyes. This is where macro photography comes in. Macro photography is the technique used by professionals to capture these types of close-up shots.
Macro lenses are the gear that is specifically designed for macro photography. With an ultra-long long barrel for close focusing, macro lenses are sometimes a little costly, but definitely worth it. It lets professional photographers capture macro photos that will be impossible with their normal gear as these lenses are optimized for high reproduction ratios. Most modern macro lenses can focus continuously to infinity as well, using focusing mechanisms that change the optical formula. Macro lenses are not only used in macro photography, but also for normal photography. It provides a higher level of performance in regular photography as these lenses provide excellent optical quality. And to bring macro photography to the next level, true macro lenses can achieve a much higher magnification, allowing the photography of the small insects, snowflakes, parts of flowers and other miniature subjects.

Today we’ll begin our journey with an amazing Great Wall photo. Just stunning how someone could build stuff like that. Although this artwork is beautiful, we’ll move to another beauty – check the photo called Brides & Widows by Joanna Kustra. Love the innocence in her eyes. From today’s illustrations I like two the most. I am speaking about The loneliness of a sappy man by Marco Piunti and a bit spooky artwork called Family Portrait of the Passed by Jon MacNair. They are actually at the very end of the section … to give you proper instructions :). For those who like monsters, we got few in the 3d section, but I like the CG Amphibious Creature Bust by Mauricio (Maury) Ruiz the most … seems pretty hungry :). Of course there are plenty of other cool inspirations such as paintings, ads, typography etc … so you better check those. At the very end I would like to mention a very nice freebie – Glowing Volume Knob & Switch by Premium Pixels. Make sure to get it.
Breathtaking collection of amazing extreme climbing photos. Enjoy!

Though neither miniature in stature nor with hairy feet, the Dale family has the pleasure of calling a Hobbit sized and designed house home in Wales. Aside from the exquisite design, the house has the privilege of being regarded as one of the most eco-friendly structures in the world. Forgoing convention, designer, builder, and family father Simon Dale, decided to uproot his family and live a more sustainable life. In four months with the help of his father-in-law, friends, and £3000, he managed to construct the hobbit house in a hillside. Dale ensured that every element of the house was constructed in harmony with nature. The frame of the house is constructed from oak thinnings that were gathered by the family while the walls and other foundations were constructed from stone and mud. To insulate the house, the family used straw bales in the floor, walls, and roof.
