Macro Challenge - Lock

December 17th, 2020
Thank you to Louise (@lmsa) who hosted the Macro Cupboard challenge. And thank you to everyone who participated and voted!

I had a hard time choosing a subject for this challenge, since most of the ideas have already been done in previous challenges. I did see that we’ve already done keys, so I think we now need to do locks. This is open to any type of lock, padlocks, house locks, bike locks, whatever. Doesn’t matter if you shoot the keyway, the lock body, or break it open and shoot the internals, anything related to a lock will work.

Tag your entry macro-lock. Entries can be viewed here:

The challenge will run from December 17th, and run until January 14th.

All photographs must be taken between these dates. You can enter multiple times.

Macro shots don’t necessarily have to be taken with a macro lens - any photo that makes small objects look larger than life can be considered a macro. For tips on doing macro photography on a budget, visit:
