While I typically love how a macro lens reveals the ‘unseen’ and therefore gravitate toward shots heavy on the detail, I have been wanting to try and capture a completely different ‘feel’ with it lately. A shot that only reveals small areas of detail, yet still shows the form of the subject as only a macro can.
Sometimes, as with life itself, you know when it’s your time to step back a little.
I think, even with a soft touch (or maybe because of it?) true beauty still shines through. At least I hope so! :)
