Impressive augmented photography is what we are showing you if you had never heard about Macro photography. This type of photography shows every detail of everyday objects and things, but observed from a very close perspective. Therefore, what’s interesting about this type of pictures is that many of the features and details that we do not usually notice with our eyes or in panoramic regular pictures, are shown in the macro shots. What is photographed is enlarged to the point of resembling gigantic.
The pictures we’ll show you were taken by the winners of the 2017 Nikon Photography competition. Are you ready to watch them closely?
Mold in a tomato, Netanya (Japan)
You can’t deny that more than once you took a tomato and noticed that it has mold and couldn’t stop observing it. Well that's how it looks from very close.
In this picture we can observe , from a very detailed point of view, a type of dandelion while pollination is done.
This is a mineral that consists of chloride and lead phosphate, and usually takes the form of green and yellow crystals as shown in this picture. Do not get excited, it will not give you any superpower.
These are two types of minerals, Coxenite and Nsutite, seen from very close. Hard to believe that they look like this, since it looks like something from an extraterrestrial land.
