Soap bubbles are generally cute but in the photography of Thomas Jane they transform into something that is very lovely, with a generous helping of psychedelic appearance. Never thought I’d say this, but soap bubbles, I’m impressed.
Photographer Andrew Osokin gets up, close and personal with the fragile snowflake, photographing it in all its macro beauty and glory. Those snowflakes look as lovely as we could have imagined. At the same time, it is surprising to see that the tiny snowflake might have such a complex construction. Well, thanks to an earlier [...]
We’d imagine giant bug eyes would be quite scary, and we’re pretty sure they are, because we know that the magic of macrophotography somehow manages to make everything look better. Singapore based photographer Shikhei Goh photographed the eyes of several bugs and insects, making them look innocent and cute, rather than the creepy scary things [...]
The Big Bang photo set by Deborah Bay has little to with its namesake, except bearing an uncanny resemblance to photographs of galaxies and nebulae that we see. The reality is much more simpler, these are macro photographs of bullets shot into plexiglass. So incredibly simple, yet so surprisingly familiar.
As time goes by, we’re getting increasingly thankful for macrophotography. Checkout these lovely images of Dandelions covered in dew drops by UK based photographer Sharon Johnstone.
We’ve already established that insects look better through the eyes of macrophotography. Now if they subjects of these pics happen to be covered in dew, they look quite different, like they’re wearing jewels.

He spent that time reading about ants and observing the wonderful and powerful little creatures and their society.
