Macro Photography


What is macro photography? "Macro photography is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects and living organisms like insects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size" reference

This means you get up close and personal to the object you are shooting. It is a way to show the world in a whole new way. Most of the time, people go right on by the small things, but if you take the time to look at them, it can open up a whole new world of photography to you. Macro photography can be a really amazing way to look at the world.

How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?


The contest is broken up into three different tiers. Each will have a different rewards for the winners based on what tier you enter into. Here is a breakdown of the rewards based on the tiers:

1st100% Upvote80% Upvote60% Upvote
2nd80% Upvote60% Upvote40% Upvote
3rd60% Upvote40% Upvote30% Upvote

Each contest will be open for submissions for 6 days and close on the 7th day so that winners can be picked and the new post can be made.

What are the themes?

  • Monday - Macro
  • Tuesday - Landscapes
  • Wednesday - Wildlife
  • Thursday - Portraits
  • Friday - Sports
  • Saturday - Black and White
  • Sunday - Streetphotography

How to enter


When you enter a photo in the competition, you will state what tier you want to be judged in and locked in for the month at that level.

For example if you enter a photo, you drop the photo in the comment section, state what level of photographer you are, and then give a description of the photograph.

That's pretty much it, drop a photo in the comment section of this post and state your tier. If you want to make a separate post for your entry as well, that is fine, but for your entry to be valid, your photo and tier must be in here in the comment section of this post. If you do make a separate post, be sure to use the #photography and #creativecoin tags.

Additional Notes


  • Only one submission per contest. Extra submissions will be ignored.

  • You can switch your tier ONE time per month, but only if you are moving up into a higher tier, for example if you are currently in the amateur tier, but you think that you have a photograph that you want to enter in the professional tier, you can state that you are changing your tier to professional. You will then be locked into the new tier for the remainder of the month. You are not able to move down to a lower tier, like going from amateur to the beginner tier.

  • If you do not state which tier you want to be judged in for the month, I will leave a comment to remind you to do so, but if you don't respond, you will be assigned to a tier and locked in for that month.

  • Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any form. All submissions must be your own work. I will investigate every entry and if you are caught plagiarizing, not only will you be blacklisted from competing from any future contests, but you will be reported to @steemcleaners as well. It is not worth it to try and cheat, especially with the 3 tier set up where everyone has an equal shot of winning.

Thank you to everyone that will be participating. The contest wouldn't be around without your great submissions!

Hello @derangedcontest, A small shrimp as subject for your macro contest.
Tier : Pro


This is so cool

Thanks for choosing my spidey as the amateur winner. I'm going to enter another spider, this one I took literally 1 hour ago.


Tier : Amateur

Such a dope shot.

Cheers, this is one of my recent favourites

Nature is an amazing artist. And while the Universe supposed to be endless, everybody of us visually stumbles across same kind of forms in a very different places.
Well, maybe that how the Human mind is working, trying to find something similar in foreign environment to reduce the stress? Who knows...

So here is a macro shot of some snowflake elements just dropped onto the mirror surface and almost started melting. Do you see THE RABBIT and THE HORSE??? Or that's only something about artistic mind to be able to see this... :)

Enjoy it!
