Shooting macro is always a bit of a challenge. Whereas in normal photography the focus is on capturing what the eye sees, macro photography doesn't necessarily follow that. Instead, with the right lens and lighting, it's possible to bring out intricate details and tiny aspects of everyday objects that your eyes cant see on their own. Details as simple as a spec of dust or a scratch on a lens have the chance to add to a unique tone that you can't see in any other type of photography, changing the standards by creating an entire image out of nothing more than a few square inches of space. That's one of the reasons why I love macro photography, it's a challenge to look at the objects around you and find their most minute details, then capture them for others to see, perhaps even in something as simple and ordinary as a tiny cameo pendant from the jewellery box.
