Weekly Theme - Macro

by bilbaroo on Feb 19th 2018

This week we want you to take a closer looks at your surroundings with one of the most popular, yet challenging photography styles, macro.

It's often assumed that this sort of photography needs an expensive 'macro lens', but really it means 'producing a photo of something small in larger than life size' - basically, zooming in really close!

So, whether you have a macro lens, a point-and-shoot compact, or a smart phone - you'll be able to have a go at perfecting those close up shots. From bugs and flowers, to raindrops and snowflakes, you most likely won't have to look far for inspiration!

How to enter this week's theme

When uploading your photos use the tag section (on the edit/organise screen) and insert this week's theme tag: theme-macro.

Entry Guidelines: Photos must be your own and must have been taken and uploaded from Monday 19th February until the following Saturday (6 days). 5 finalists will be chosen on the Sunday afternoon (PST), then you get to vote for the winner.

Winner of the 'Up' theme

Thank you for casting your votes - we're super excited to announce @bokehdot as the winner of the up theme!

It's not surprising we couldn't resists the incredibly cute, perfectly captured, shot of @bokehdot's feline friend leaping up into the air. We especially love that it brought a huge grin to our faces and made us wonder what is up for grabs - turns out it was a simple piece of string!

Vote for the 'Love' theme winner

Well, what can we say? We simply 'loved' looking at all your entries to the love theme. Most importantly, it looks like you had a lot of fun capturing romance and the spirit of Valentine's Day! We finally managed to choose just five finalists, so now it's over to you.

To cast your vote, just reply to this blog post with the number (in digit form) of the photo you would like to see win.

4. So very meaningful. 2nd runner up, though, is the charming shot of the kids drinking a coke... not for the soda, but for the personal sweetness.
