“Photography is fascinating and now I can say that it is not just my hobby. It is part of my life,” were the words of 36-year-old Bulgarian photographer Ivelina Blagoeva.  But, her photography subjects are not those we traditionally associate with the industry.  Rather than people or places or gorgeous sunsets, Ivelina chooses to focus on macro photography, bringing to life organic elements in beautiful color and detail while lighting her subjects in a very simple fashion.

“I try to improve my own results, and I find inspiration in the works of other authors, as well as in the search for a different look at some very ordinary objects.”

Most of her images are created indoors in what she calls a “small, makeshift ‘studio,’” illuminating her scenes with a simple desk lamp. “I’m happy when I manage to find beauty in the most ordinary materials and household items.”

“I like all genres of photography, but mostly shoot macro and abstract photography,” she says…and for that we can be thankful.  These stunning images take the ordinary and transforms it into extraordinary.

“Frequently used objects in my compositions lately are the dandelions and water droplets,” Ivelina told me, though she frequently focuses on capturing the little nuances in other subjects, such as carbonated water, soap bubbles, plants, and insects.

She describes her work as being “in search of effective ways of lighting, refraction, reflection, and use of glare,” sometimes staining water to achieve more impact.
