Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting a macro shot on the forest floor, part of Landscape Photography: Washington's Olympic National Park.
- In the world of macro photography,…is there anything better than the forest floor?…As we continue to tell stories in the forest…and use different lenses in order to tell those stories,…the macro lens is so powerful.…It gives you an incredibly unique, close up view…on the macro subjects of the forest.…On the walk back from the falls,…I had my eye out for something special.…I didn't know what it was,…I just knew that something here would really catch my eye.…Now I found some interesting brown/green fern combinations…I really liked, but I didn't love.…
I was still looking for something to really jump out.…Now what I found over here is a leaf…that is decayed so much so that only the veins…of the leaf are left.…There's nothing in between.…There's no color.…It's just...It almost looks like a spider web.…That absolutely fascinates me…and if I wanna tell that story,…only one lens is gonna do it,…and that's the macro lens.…Now in order to get everything set up just right,…it's complicated.…You have to be very comfortable moving your tripod…
