Typically in photography, maintaining your close-up images uncluttered and essentially simple can give you the most effective results. Another virtue that most photographers would be well-served to have is patience and persistence. And still, other points worth emphasizing are depth of field as well as isolating your subject, two elements to keep in mind for great macro photography.

Stefano Unterthiner’s work is about as intimate as you can get to wildlife and other exotic animals. Based on the proximity from which these were taken, one would think Unterthiner gets this close by using a remote-controlled camera mount often employed by those shooting dangerous species. Unterthiner does not use any such gadgets, and he often gets to a distance of less than a meter to the animals. Typical of his wildlife shots are images where he often catches the animals off guard and by surprise. His photos can perhaps be described generally as lighthearted, a quality they posses even if the animal subjects happen to be predatorial. He is able to strip our preconceived notions about some species and present them in a manner with neutrality, devoid of any bias.

This is what Daily Overview offers.
Don’t try this at home kids! Talk about work immersion, or in this case, digestion! If you think you’ve heard it all, swallow this. A couple of graphic design dudes performed the ultimate ‘sacrifice’ by way of swallowing 35mm film and studying the excretory results. When we say swallow we don’t mean that figuratively, but literally, as in your mouth.
