Marion Luttenberger is an Australian designer and photographer. She recently launched a series where she used mundane, everyday objects to create letters, words, and even phrases. She describes her work as a ‘low-budget, handcrafted, conceptual and experimental typography combined with photography’. Marion uses the oddest things in her work. Bacon, for example, was used to spell out the phrase “Save in Meats”. Olive fruit and leaves were also creatively arranged to spell the word olive. She has even utilized an orderly grocery aisle to create individual letters.
Simply put, macrophotography is the art of taking a close-up picture of very small objects. Although any object will do, the usual subjects are usually insects, flowers, and water droplets since they give the best results. Photography at this scale has its own difficulties. A steady hand and a great lens aren’t the only things you’ll need. In order to capture the perfect shot, you’ll have to go through a lot of trail and error with the angle, the lighting, and your timing.
There are thousands, maybe even millions, of images of running waters, steady waters, rivers, oceans, falls and such but only a select few choose to give their time to this one part that makes all those up–water droplets. Paul Quinn is one of them, adding a creative touch to it with different colorful objects, giving a nice, subtle feeling while wondering how steady it had to be before it can be as perfect as it looks on the photo itself.
