Can You Guess the Everyday Items in These Macro Photos?

There’s a world right under our noses that we seldom notice. It’s a world that we skim through but never venture deep inside. It’s only when we’re armed with a microscope or a macro lens that we’re able to magnify that world and really admire the details:

Photographer Pyanek uses simple gear like an entry level Rebel T3i (600D) with a reversed kit lens and Helicon Focus (for focus stacking) to shoot and edit these fascinating macro images of everyday things. For post-processing, he uses Lightroom and Exposure 5.
