Capturing Our Mini World - Photographing Fungi

Continuing our series on capturing a mini world through macro photography, we talked to Paula Vigus about her love of capturing fungi and how her passion helps her to network the beauty of fungi to people around the world proving that the awareness of just 1 individual can spread.

1. Paula, tell us about your journey into macro photography...

With macro photography, I feel as if I am entering into another world. A world that in our day-to-day lives we just don’t appreciate because we don’t really know it’s there until we take some time to observe. I don’t believe it is intentional, it is simply because we are living unaware of how incredible nature has developed these tiny parts such as the hairs on a bug, barely visible to the naked eye.
