A little while ago I was contacted by Calvin Dexter, the editor of a popular Spanish speaking Photography website Como La Hice regarding one of my most popular macro photographs that I have on my Flickr photostream and website. He was interested in covering my photo and how I setup and took the shot. So I wrote a small piece which he helpfully translated and on the 18th of December it was published.
All I can say is the site has generated a lot of traffic to my website from areas of the world I’ve had no previous visits. So a lesson to me and a lesson for us all, don’t forget that not all of the world speaks english as a first language and what more can we do to make our content more accessible to all our buddies spread across the globe.
For the photographers out there Como La Hice certainly seems to be very popular in the Spanish speaking world so why not take a look and help to support the wider photography community out there.
On another note, this macro image was taken without a dedicated macro lens and as I’ve mentioned before it goes to show what is achievable with some technical knowledge a little bit of creativity all without breaking the bank on expensive macro glass. I’ll go into further detail in my next blog about how you can achieve results such as this, what equipment you’ll need and how to setup your camera.
Thanks for reading.
