Behind the Photo - Macro

in #macrophotography9 months ago (edited)

My first macro shots were taken by smartphone with and sometimes without macro lens. These first photos were not planned, usually just seeing something interesting like flower or bug and I grab the phone to capture the moment.

Now I decided to do some arrangement and to make something different for my macro shots. I am not saying this was completely my idea.

I first tried to make the effect of reflection of flower in a droplet of water by using a leaf. But it did not work. Then I remember I saw someone using string and pegs and so did I. For the droplets I used syringe to place them on the string between the pegs.

This time instead of the phone I chose the camera Canon EOS 1100D and the extension rings.

I began with one ring, the 13 mm.

The droplets were smaller and I put the other two rings to achieve bigger magnification. Here I have problems with the focus and changed it to manual. The photos are still not very sharp.

I changed the angle and I had to rely on my hands not to shake. I have no tripod, but until I get some, maybe I can adapt something else. I have to think about.

I shoot in raw and then with Photoshop Express app did some edit. However this is the first attempt and I know it has to be improved. So, more practice is needed.

Lastly two shots of the flower and its heart.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Your opinion means a lot to me.

You are most welcome, @nelinoeva 🙂
I have seen such photos before, but I never tried it. Now, your cool photos and your explanations have made me curious and I think on the next rainy day I'll try it too 😉


A !BEER has to be cold and a !COFFEEA has to be hot to taste good and not !DERANGED 😉

That is so nice to hear. 😀
The droplets from rain or mist form fantastic images.

I rather thought I'd stay indoors when it rains, and make my own drops like you did ;)
Have a nice evening, @nelinoeva 🙂


!BEER

Haha, of course. 😉

I'm not far off picking up my first macro lens and if I come up with photos half as good as these I'll be happy! Nice work, keep it up!

Thank you, I am sure you will have better photos than mine.

It's all in the eye of the beholder I guess. I showed my wife your shots who thought they were really nice. She asked if I will be able to do that and I said, probably not. Lol.

You never know until you try. 😀
I have to admit that some couple of years ago I would not think that photography will turn out to be my hobby and I would be able to make nice photos. Of course I am away from what I want to achieve, but it feels like I opened a door of a whole new world.

I only take photos for fun really and don't feel the need to put too much effort into doing it well...One day I'll add it in as a hobby and take some time actually wilork out how to get better at it. 😉
