We love macro photography and have been featuring many amazing collections of macro photography since we started the site. Thanks to those talented macro photographers, we are able to see the tiny details of the world around us. And today, we will present you some work from Shikhei Goh, a creative photographer who mastered the ability to develop relationships with small insects. Goh’s sharp focus on these little creatures enlarges each tiny fiber of hair to giant proportions. If you like Goh’s work, you can find more on his portfolio. For now, let’s just gaze into those beautiful bugs’ eyes. [source]
Christopher Boffoli’s Disparity series takes the art of Macro photography and spices up his subjects by adding in tiny miniature people doing various activities, adding a wonderfully surreal, fun feel to all his pieces. Boffoli has always been interested in size disparity and a juxtaposition of scales between people and things ever since he owned a tiny model train world as a kid. He said. “There is in some part a god-like feeling to having command of an entire world, which you can rearrange at any capricious whim.” Its really awesome that it looks like he’s having fun telling a story with every image. Check out 11 of his genius macro creations after the break and find more on his site. As always, all rights retained by the creator.
Suren Manvelyan, the featured photographer in this post, is actually a PhD in Theoretical Physics specializing in Quantum Chaos. Manvelyan became professional photographer at 2006 and recently turned his attention to photographing the amazing detailed landscapes of eyes. Manvelyan has also documented in astonishing detail the Human Eye and now, similarly, the animal eye. With such close-up photos, one is even able to see details such as the irises’ color gradients, textures, patterns and even tiny blood vessels, which somehow makes those eyes look like alien planet for me. Such an incredible work! You also can see his stunning snail shots we featured before. [source]
The common insects that we hardly look at, mostly despise and even abhor, however they might become artistic intricate objects in macro-photography. Of course, some mugshots are frankly quite ugly, reenforcing our general dislike of flies and spiders. But that is not within my scope of topic. I just pick some pretty ones. If you want to see more such fascinating shots you can go and click the links I gave at the bottom.
Enjoy your Journey to the Insect World.
