Be inspired by some macro magic
Zsolt Varanka, Hungary
I was hunting for macro subjects in my favourite meadow early one morning, and everything – the grass, the flowers and the cobwebs – was covered with dewdrops, which were backlit by the rising sun. I knew that the very special bokeh my old MeyerGörlitz lens produced would enable me to record my impression of this ‘pearl world’. I had to shoot at just the right angle to the sun, using a DIY shade to prevent it hitting the front of the lens.
