Photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko is fascinated by Mother Nature and loves to capture her in small proportions. He takes absolutely stunning macro pictures of snails and other insects interacting with flowers, leaves, and water droplets.
I have been interested in photography since childhood. My father worked as a freelance photographer for the local newspapers. I observed his art and learnt it. My family used to spend a lot of weekends camping in a beautiful forest. Thus photography and nature naturally entered my life. I took my first macro shot when I was 10 years old. In those days I used to use an analog camera. After getting married and having children, photography went by the wayside. Most of the time I spent on painting. With the advent of digital photography I have renewed my passion for photography and have began to engage in macro very seriously.Vyacheslav Mishchenko
