Macro photography can be a hit or a miss, but trust British photographer Sharon Johnstone to make it a definite hit with her incredible pictures of water droplets. Sharon captured these minute details as they rest on delicate flower petals and dandelion puffs. The result poetically speaks for itself, and for the transient nature of beauty and time. You just know that those little droplets vanished into nothingness, possibly in less than a few seconds after Sharon snapped pics of them – yet for her serendipitous timing and her skill in image-making, she deserves all our admiration.
According to her brief bio, Sharon graduated from the WSCAD Fine Art department and is specialized in Fine Art printmaking, yet rarely spends any time at all in her art studio nowadays. Though she is still true to her first love, she has now been overtaken by her passion for photography. Johnstone shoots portraits and landscapes, too, yet, “with macro photography I escape to another little world. I love exploring the tiny details in nature that often get over looked. I love finding beautiful colours and abstract compositions within nature and can even get passionate about photographing moss or a blade of grass.” She confesses to being at her happiest when “exploring a small patch of moss dripping with sparkling dew in the early morning sun,” and that passion definitely shows in her work!
