10 Surreal Macro Photographs by Lee Peiling

Lee Peiling fell in love with macro photography when she took her first photograph of a flower, using a camera she borrowed from a friend. Ever since then she has become a “macro-holic” and her work has been nothing short of phenomenal.

Her latest project is called “Slow in Love” and is about three snails that live in her garden. She has grown to love them and has captured outstanding imagery using external flashes and filters to control the light. Insects are not always the easiest subjects to work with, but Lee’s patience pays off big time.

“The stars will be Snail Mama, Snail Papa and Baby Snail. They move so slow which normally will takes up lots of time for me to see them start acting, but it is so rewarding if you’re willing to spend the time! I used to hate snails, now they are in my favortie actors or actress list.”

Be sure to check out the rest of Lee’s project over here. You can also follow her on 500px, Tumblr, Flickr and Facebook.
