Macro Photography is basically taking pictures of small things like butterflies, bugs, flowers frogs and making them big. I love this type of photography! I love getting really close to the subject. I also think when you can see little critters up close it takes away the fear of them. Their faces can be so […]

Portland Rosebuds Up Close

StopandSeetheNature 0 Macro Photography, Portland Flowers
