Hi Friends! Welcome to Photo Club.
For this challenge, we are going to explore the technique of macro photography. Macro photography is an extreme close-up. The really cool thing about macro photography is that it focuses on small details or things we wouldn’t normally take a close look at.
For this project we are getting inspiration from photographer Edward Weston. Weston is known for his close up, abstract images of fruits and vegetables. Since his images are in black and white, your eyes focus on the shapes, lines and contours of the foods, and lets us appreciate the details.
Check out the videos below to learn more and get inspired to take a closer look at the objects all around you!
