Drew Geraci presents an eye-popping macrophotographic look at items like salt, pepper, fruits, and vegetables. He captured the 1000x magnifications using a microscope, a Sony A9 camera, and devised a tiny slider rig to smoothly move the microscope’s tray.

We’ve seen popcorn popped in slow-motion before, but that was “only” at 6,200 fps. Warped Perception captured the explosive force of heated popcorn kernels at 30,000 fps in front of the macro lens of their Phantom v2512 ultra high-speed camera.

BBC Earth show The Hunt captured crisp macro footage of hotrod ants, as they make their way through the scorching 150ºF+ Namib desert, where it’s so hot that they would die if they stopped in the sun for even a few seconds. But the extreme heat isn’t their only foe.

Artist GMUNK created this mesmerizing and relaxing video by capturing slow-mo macro footage of fluids and objects subject to vibrations, a reflection of nature’s “willful, conscious impulse” for change. The footage starting around 4:15 is especially noteworthy.

Ink in Motion

Macro Room’s latest video sees them submerging a variety of objects into a tank of water and then injecting ink, creating otherworldly images for split-seconds. The montage at the end is one of the sickest things we’ve ever seen.

Sweating Fingerprint

Timelapse Vision used a combination of macro and time-lapse photography to give us an up-close look at what our fingertips look like when they start to sweat. It’s easy to forget that we’re looking at a human finger and not some strange alien landscape.

You’ll want to put your headphones on and go full-screen to get the most out of Stereokroma’s hypnotic video, featuring super crisp macro photography of frozen fruits and veggies being thawed, accompanied by appropriate, if not exactly realistic ASMR sound effects.

Things Cut in Half

Our new favorite timewasting YouTube channel Macro Room cut vegetables, shoes and other household objects in half, then kicked things up a notch with crispy close up shots and reverse time-lapses. Made with the help of the Adaptalux and Syrp Genie.

Everyday Objects in Macro

Using multiple lenses, along with some editing trickery, the folks at Macro Room take us up close and personal with a variety of ordinary objects, then zoom out so we can see what we were actually looking at. We were so convinced that Coke bottle cap was a red bell pepper.

Bubbles and Foam

UK Talent Janet Waters created an extraordinary series of abstract photographs by taking macro shots of bubbles and foam with her macro lens. The result is intricate and ethereal. (Thanks Danna!)

Spider vs. Ant

Spider vs. Ant

This close-up video by Ahmet Özkan shows an ant being hog-tied by a spider. Not only is the photographic detail incredible, there’s an extra-special surprise if you stick around until the end.
