Macro Photos Show Amazing Details of Everyday Objects

In his macro photo series Amazing Worlds Within Our World, artist Pyanek demonstrates the enormous complexity of everyday objects. Through the modified Canon T3i lens, squiggly fibers in book pages come into sharp focus, dramatic pit marks on the tip of a matchstick become visible, and beautiful green and gold streaks in the metal of a common screw jump out. To produce the images, the artist took multiple exposures with different focus points and stacked the frames, editing them in Adobe Lightroom and Exposure 5.

Pyanek's project calls attention to stunning details hidden on the surface of common items. It suggests beauty is hidden in the everyday, available to those who will take the time to look closely enough.
