Ever wished you could view small details that we cannot see — like what would ants or snails look like up close? Photographing these tiny creatures requires a lot of patience, a good understanding of what shutter speed should be used, a proper depth of field to separate the subject from the background, a tripod, and a nice macro lens to view these little subjects clearly.
Japanese photographer Miki Asai is a macro photographer who appreciates the beauty of tiny living things that cannot be seen well with the naked eye. Miki started showing interest in macro photography when she was taking pictures in her garden and noticed beautiful raindrops. Suddenly, an ant walked through the frame just as she snapped a picture of it. In that moment, she thought she might not have seen it if she was not using a macro lens. She then began to improve her macro photography skills every day. She made it her personal mission to teach herself how to shoot so she could show the world that these tiny creatures exist.
Through her lens, she will give us a glimpse of the world of the small, which we sometimes never notice.
Lovely, aren’t they?
