Sometimes, we ignore the beauty we have in our surroundings.
When we’re in nature, we don’t notice tiny small things that are beautiful too. 20-year-old amateur photographer Sasi Kumar, from India, captures amazing macro shots of insects. And he does it all with only his smartphone.
“Photography is about the depth of feeling not the depth of field,” Kumar shared his philosophy with Bored Panda. He explained patience and passion are so much important for a photographer, especially when it comes to macro photography.
Bored Panda asked what drew Kumar to macro photography and what the biggest challenges that he faced along the way. Here’s what he had to say: “At first, I was going with common photographs, but after some days, I thought of being unique and wanted to stand out.”
That’s when he decided to try taking macro photographs. “So I tried macros and I learned them in depth.” The photographer said that he is learning more and more every day.
“The challenging thing in macro photography is that handling a phone with lenses is a bit difficult. If there is a minute shake that can be a photo-spoiler,” he said. “Photos could be bad and spoiled because of unexpected wind, shakes, sound, etc.” That means that patience is key.
Kumar told Bored Panda that he’s an engineering student and wants to be a software developer while moonlighting as a photographer. He thinks insects are “beautiful creatures” that “enhance the beauty of nature.” That’s why he chooses to photograph them.
He explained how “macro photography is all about patience, passion, and lots of dedication.”
“It also includes learning from the spoiled picture. Never stop learning in this field. Every take for a single picture may lead to an extraordinary output later. Accept mistakes from previous pictures, take both negatives and positives from feedback, suggestions, and opinions.”
“Photos are not just meant for likes, they could depict an amazing story. Perspective is everything.“
