Macro is a term that fascinates everyone. Who doesn’t like miniature models being shot up close and turned into giants with all the intricate detailing, previously unseen by the naked eye; Extremely close and detailed photographs of exceptionally minute objects is macro photography. This gives you a chance to view details you have never seen before. Flowers and insects have been the most common subjects for macro photography. They are small and possess out of the world features, worth admiring!
So how do you actually go macro? Not all lenses will suffice. A macro lens has got the ability to properly focus on objects which are much nearer unlike in normal lens. This is what makes the subject look gigantic while not losing even a fraction of the detailing. Macro photography is not easy at all and requires a lot of technical knowledge too. I will just pay short visits to each of the vital tech terms.
Mahim Nature Parksource
Situated near Dharavi, Asia's largest slum, Maharashtra Nature Park, which was once called Mahim Nature Park comes across as a breath of fresh air. This educational park was the brainchild of Shanta Chatterji, a busy corporate lawyer and the chairperson of World Wildlife Fund (WWF). As a citizen she is very much concerned about environment conservation, which is deteriorating and needs immediate action.
37 acre Mahim Nature Park, which today stands testimony to the 12 long years of hard work put in by her and her team. The park was opened for school children in 1992. Two years later they began allowing general public to visit the park. Every year, around 1.5 lakh people visit this park, which has 580 species of plants, houses 123 species of birds (as recorded), more than 78 types of butterflies, 22 varieties of reptiles and amphibia and more than 30 species of spiders.
