About Me

Caleb Swanson is a 14 year old amateur macro photographer, who wants people to acknowledge the complexity of God's Creation through the images he makes. He has learned from Thomas Shahan, who is a renowned macro photographer, and many Youtube videos. Starting out, he used his BlackBerry Playbook and a little plastic magnifying glass to make some macro photos of leaves and other plants. After a long time of watching photography videos, he wanted to be able to fully control his shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, and upgraded to a DSLR, the Nikon d3000. Since he couldn't take macro photos right off, Caleb Swanson tried landscapes, but that just wasn't for him. After watching more Youtube videos, I learned how to use a reversing ring and a macro filter. I have been progressing in macro photography experience ever since.
