5 Great Winter Macro Photography Ideas

Winter is upon us, and if you are anything like me, you will try to avoid going out in the cold whenever possible. The beauty of macro photography is that there are fantastic subjects all around you, meaning you do not necessarily have to trek miles away to get great shots! This excellent video tutorial will show you five fun winter macro photography ideas and offer some tips to help you get the best shots. 

Coming to you from Micael Widell, this awesome video tutorial will show you five winter macro photography ideas. The neatest part about macro photography is that there are subjects literally all around us, and winter brings a whole new bevy of them. Of course, the snowflake is the classic shot we all know, and there are a ton of ways to shoot them, but beyond that, do not just go looking for purely winter subjects. Exploring how normal subjects (such as tree branches) interact with the cold environment can bring a new perspective to familiar images and will give you all the more photo options. Even seemingly mundane things can be beautiful when shot with a macro lens. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Widell.
