There is beauty in even the smallest things found in ruins. In this video, pro photographer Kylee Leonetti gives you tips on using a macro lens. You will learn that moss makes a compelling macro lens subject. Moss grows on ruins and comes in all patterns, textures, and colors. You will learn composition techniques that allow you to capture abstracts, extreme close-ups, and experimental images while using a macro lens. Kylee also makes photographs of weeds, wires, spiders, and insects against a concrete wall. You will learn to look for rough surfaces such as chipped paint, decayed bark, brick, or rust, all ideal subjects when using a macro lens.
