She has spent six year perfecting her technique, the stillness in her work often defying gravity.
Heidi is a member of the highly curated 1X fine arts photography community. She primarily shoots macro, a method of extreme close-up, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size. While macro photographers often focus on the detailed textures of insect and flowers, amateur photographer Heidi Westum deviates from the norm to take us instead on simpler yet more structured macroscopic journey. She does this by fusing photography with oil painting by carefully arranging tiny drops of oil on an illuminated canvas of water.
Heidi pairs her Nikon D600 or her Nikon D750, with macro lenses (60mm-108mm) combined with high exposure to achieve the desired effect.
