The fun of "Why?" is in the back-story and always from the artist directly. This image today is our first adventure into macro photography, and it's all thanks to Mike Moats.
A quick visit to Mike's website (Just click on the image) and you'll notice a wide range in the variety of his macro images, from the recognizable to the obscure, he always stays true to his passion as a "landscape" photographer. While it might seem like a stretch, it's all in your perspective. His website is called "TinyLandscapes."
I first met Mike through his role as a Tamron Image Master and did a spotlight profile post on his work. What I love about Mike's work is his ability to take us places that are always around us, but we never see! In this new sound-byte, Mike shares a lot of great insight into what makes a macro flower shot unique. And, just like any of your images, no matter what your specialty, you've got to make your work look better/different than what everybody else captures!
A big thanks to Mike and all of the artists to date. There are now fifteen in the series. Each one has presented a different perspective on their work and in the process we're each getting the benefit of knowing them a little better!
