Amazing Eye Macros

March 5, 2010


Recently I stumbled across a blog entry about extreme close ups of bug eyes. Just like most photographers, I’ve seen macros of bugs before. However, this collection stood out to me for the quantity and quality of this grouping. The bugs are amazing and the detail and clarity of them are amazing.

What is so amazing about these photographs is not only that the color and details of these tiny insects are so intriguing. It is also the fact that every other aspect of these images are top notch. For example, composition, framing and overall presentation. I would think photographing such small creatures would make it even more difficult to get the entire image perfect.

These images were not all taken by the same photographer. They are a collection, however you can find the individual photographers responsible for each image below each photograph. Well worth checking out!

The Big Picture – Amazing Photojournalism

March 3, 2010

I am personally not that into photojournalism. Maybe it’s because I haven’t seen powerful images as that found on our site we’re featuring today. It’s called The Big Picture.

It’s a photoblog run by the Boston Globe Newspaper. An editor there selects the best photographs from AP, Reuters and other news agencies and organizes them by a theme or event.

Some of the events are hard news stories, like the inauguration of Barack Obama and the tragedy in Chile. Other topics are more slice-of-life—check out this collection of photos of dance from around the world.
