“Don’t make the mistake of hiring an amateur or “Uncle Bob.” You can’t ask an amateur or a friend do it and expect their work to look like the photographer that you really fell in love with but didn’t bother to meet with or you couldn’t afford. a $500 photographer’s work will not look the same as a $3,000 photographer because it will not. Do they have a business license? How long have they established? What kind of education did they have? Do they do continuing education?
Starlight | Alexey Kljatov | As fascinating as macro photography is, most of us think we can’t do it because it requires specialized equipment. Alexey, however, is an inspiration to aspiring amateur photographers everywhere -he created a home-made rig capable of capturing stunning close-up pictures of snowflakes out of old camera parts, boards, screws and tape. His pictures give us an enchanting close-up view of snowflakes that we could never hope for without specialized equipment.
