“If your photographs aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.” — Robert Capa

If you’ve followed my previous photo challenges, you’ll know that I am enamored with nature. I love the exotic and the mundane, the wondrous and the earthy. One of my favorite things about nature is her details — the intricate vascular system of a leaf, the wispy patterns in clouds at sunset, or luminous beads of dew on the delicate filaments of a dandelion seed. When distilled down to the details, a weed becomes a lovely piece of art.

Fun Fact: This image was shot with my phone and an inexpensive clip-on macro lens called an olloclip. You don’t need fancy equipment to capture tiny details!

For this week’s challenge, try to look past the big picture and take a more intimate approach. Zoom in on details in unexpected places — it can be something from the natural world, or it can be human-made. We’re excited to see what you find with your lens.

  1. My take on the challenge is usually to somehow interpret whatever photo I’m working on at the time of the challenge’s email into the challenge theme. So this week, a live shot of Iraqi singer Kadim Al Sahir, is almost “anti-details” 🙂

    But I do like how certain subtle details appear only after the subject’s black suit is blended into the darkly-lit background. Would love to hear your thoughts. 🙂 Cheers and a great weekend to you all!
