Macro photography opens up a brand new world of miniature details that you simply can't see with the naked eye. Take a macro lens with you the next time you're out on a walk or shooting landscapes, and keep an eye out for smaller points of interest like leaves, mushrooms and insects. If you have access to a garden you'll also be able to get plenty of practice in on smaller subjects such as flowers.

We recently caught up with small world photographer Henrik Spranz, who is best known for wonderful close-ups shot with a wide-open aperture and heaps of incredible swirly bokeh.
