Macro Photography is close up shots with extreme detail and an emphasis on pattern. It's usually used to shoot very small subjects or small parts of larger subjects. Precise focus and lighting is key to a successful photo. It is also important that  Backgrounds  do not overshadow the subject. We feel the out of focus background only emphasizes the subject in a positive way. Another thing to think about is the outside influences that can effect this precise art. Wind, uncooperative subjects, even your own heart beat can be a factor that may make or break a shot. Its not an easy thing to pull off, and after viewing Dusan's Photos we can really get an appreciation for anyone that successfully uses this style.

If your feeling inspired and want to explore this style yourself here are some resources.
