Finding the beauty in the everyday objects surrounding us

About this project

Hey, KickStarters!
I'm bringing back The World in Macro, and hoping to generate a bit more buzz this time around. I'm really passionate about this, and I'd absolutely love the opportunity to share my work with more people out there. 

Overview
I've always felt there is so much beauty all around us, and throughout our lives we overlook and ignore so many wonderful details.  For this, my first Kickstarter project (2.0), I'm looking at the beauty in the minutiae and examining the World in Macro.

What I'm Doing
 
There are two main themes I'm going to investigate: Organic, and Inorganic.  Essentially, these themes will explore natural (organic), and man-made (inorganic) objects and textures. Each of these collections of images will be available as individual prints or as a photo book, and higher pledge levels also contain special print items.

What the Money is For
I've always had dreams of being an artist and sharing my visions with the world. So, I'm turning to Kickstarter to do just that!  With your help and support, maybe my dreams can be realized. The pledge money will be used to rent a macro lens for the completion of the images for this project and some planned future projects.  But, the majority of the pledge money goes towards the rewards themselves - printing, binding, and otherwise creating them.  Any additional money raised will help me in starting my own fledgling photography business, where I can continue doing something I love - exploring the world, and sharing my vision through photography. 

About the Images
 
All images for this project will be photographed by me and rendered without any significant digital manipulation, so the prints, books, etc. you pledge for will be what I saw and did my best to capture, nothing more. The exact number of images per collection is not yet determined, but I'm planning somewhere between 20 and 30 for each.

A Few Examples

Pledge Rewards
 
The rewards for various pledge levels should be relatively self-explanatory, but if there's any confusion, I am always willing to offer clarification.  And if you're interested in something not explicitly named in the reward tiers, don't hesitate to send me a message about it. 

If You've Read this Far...
 
Thank you so much for checking out my project, and even if what I'm doing or offering doesn't interest you, maybe you know someone who would appreciate your passing it on to them. I know I'd appreciate you doing so...Thanks again!

FAQ

  • No problem! I'll include that option in the survey following the conclusion of the project. Any book can be substituted for the same size prints of every image from that collection. So, if you pledge for both collections in 10x10 hard cover, and would prefer the prints instead - you can select to receive 10x10 prints of every image. Simple as that!

    Last updated:
  • Each and every image is an every-day object that you might disregard on a regular basis. Part of the concept behind this project is that the small beauty is what's truly captured, rather than the subject as a whole. But, if you're really curious, all the images will be titled and identified in the final pieces.
