Shooting everyday objects close-up can reveal a whole new world. Today, see what you can find in a macro or close-up shot. If you have a point-and-shoot camera, it probably has a macro mode that you can turn on. If you shoot with an SLR, you can either use a macro lens, or you can take a lens and flip it around to get a “poor man’s macro” lens. This is a great theme for experimenting, so get out there and have some fun!

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
