Macro photography has the ability to showcase the beautiful little worlds that we all so often don’t notice. From a snail on a blade of grass, to rain falling gently on a flower petal, seeing these up close and in detail is mesmerizing and can transport the viewer to a different world. Hokkaido, Japan based photographer Miki Asai, has a knack for making the miniature world, eye catching and beautiful as you will see in a series of images.
Miki says it was her first day with her macro lens in her garden when she noticed the beautiful world that was too small to see with the naked eye. Ever since then, she has found a way to make the miniature world look beautiful, mesmerizing, and larger than life. She states that to achieve beautiful macro photography, it takes time, patience, the right gear, settings, and your passion.

Miki seems to have a connection with the miniature world. Plus, she is using gear that is not all that expensive to make it look mesmerizing. I personally have never tried macro photography, but after seeing Miki’s images, I feel the need to slow down and capture the beauty of the miniature worlds that are unseen all around me.
