Macro photography shows the small and often unseen wonders of our world but for Panagiotis Dalagiorgos, it goes even further. “It is a means of expressing my feelings and pushes me to be creative in my compositions. My subjects are usually not that easy for humans to relate to, so I have to think outside the ordinary to evoke some feelings in the viewer.” 

During our conversation, Panagiotis shared with me the creative process behind the image and the techniques he employed to capture its stunning detail and vivid colors.

He bought his first camera and macro lens during the pandemic lockdowns in 2020 and has been photographing the small wonders of nature ever since. He recently started working as a professional photographer in other genres, but says that nature photography will always be his first love.
