Macro Photography


This is coming a day late since yesterday was Easter and I spent the day away from my computer and spent it with family. Better late than never...

What makes a good macro shot? It is a lot more than just getting close to your subject. Macro photography really lets your audience see something from a totally different perspective. To make a good macro shot, you really need to find something and show off a part of it in a way that is not normally seen.

I am hoping that we get some cool shots for this one. Macro photography allows you to capture images from a world that normally goes unnoticed. So get creative with this and let's see what you can come up with for this theme.


How is the Deranged Photography Contest set up?

Every Sunday, I will announce a new theme for the week and you will have until Friday to get your submission in. There will be two tiers for the contest. A professional tier and an amateur tier. When making your submission, you must state which tier you will be competing in. I usually get a lot of entries, so make sure to follow all the rules or else your submission won't count and will likely be ignored.

I will not allow any entry that is not your own original photography. If you are caught plagiarizing someone else's work, you will be flagged and banned from participating in any future contest. So make sure that the photos you are submitting are ones that you personally take.

All entries must be done through the Liketu front end. One of the goals of the contest is to create more awareness of Liketu, so make sure that you create your post from

You only get one entry per week, so make sure to spend some time on getting a good photo and creating a fun post about your entry. You will need to submit a link to your post in the comment section of the contest announcement post and you will need to include at least one image from your post in the comment you make. You are encouraged to share more than one image in your post. The more effort you put into your post, the more chance you have for curation and possibly winning your tier.

On top of a chance for curation from Liketu, the top three entries in each tier will be awarded as follows:

1st8 Hive4 Hive
2nd5 Hive3 Hive
3rd3 Hive2 Hive

Rules overview

  • Your entry must be made on Liketu.
  • No plagiarism. If you are caught plagiarizing, you will be flagged and banned from future contest.
  • You must state the tier you are competing in, Professional or Amateur.
  • You must comment on the weekly contest announcement post with a link to your entry and at least one photo from your post.

The rules are pretty easy, so make sure to follow them or your entry will be ignored. Now onto the first theme for the contest!

Hello. Here is my first entry for the contest. I hope everything is correct.


Nice bro! I defiantly want to see the cannabis community start participating more into these things. It really is a great way to showcase the great content that is being produced. You are one of our best!

Thx 🙏 Seeing the level of the participants I am going to have to try harder.

I am here another week. I am not really sure if this can be considered a Macro, but it is "kind" of a Macro. Well I hope it fits the theme and hopefully you like it:

Entry on the Amateur Level :D

This week's theme broke me in half: no macro lens here. Fortunately, I remembered of some photos from a compact camera that has a macro preset. For such a cheap camera the results are... decent. Here is my entry for the amateur tier.


Im glad you were able to get an entry in this week.

Always a pleasure to spread the contests, which makes the blockchain a whole lot fun

I couldn't pick just one :)

A new theme a new challenge!

You're welcome. Thanks for taking part in the contest.

Awesome photos everybody. A burner! Who would've thought hahahaha

These photos are really nice congrats to all the winners

Hi dear friend . I also participated in last week's round but I felt that the time of the match was over. In this new challenge, do you have to have a macro lens for photography ??

You do not need a macro lens to do this but it would definitely help out. By the way, you never made an entry last week, but hopefully you can this week.

This is an interesting contest, im not even cut out for it because i am not a professional neither an amateur.
Good luck to the partipants and i anticipate seeing pictures from another perspective.

You should give it a shot. It's all about being creative.

Maybe I will try🙂

Hello dear friend @derangedvisions good afternoon

Hello . Dear friend, is voting for others effective in these competitions, or is it only your opinion and your choice that matters?

You can definitely vote for others to show your support to their work, but I don't take that into account when I am choosing a winner. If I did that, then it would just become a popularity contest to see who could ask people to get the most votes on their submissions
