Macro photography of insects by Nicolas Reusens

Nicolas Reusens’ magnificent macro photography gives viewers a whole new perspective on the little things in life. More specifically, the little creatures we often choose to ignore.

Inspired by a love for nature and travel, Reusens creates these extreme close-ups using a technique called focus stacking. This technique involves taking multiple photographs with different shutter speeds to increase the depth of field. Each final composition is a combination of between 2 and 200 different exposures, creating this unique science-fiction look.
