Macro Photography Session | Once Upon a time a dead insect

By aleister | aleister | 21 Sep 2020


It´s not at all a photo shoot whose details have been explored to the fullest, perhaps in honor of the past existence of this tiny thing that was now motionless, dry and dead in the sun, trying to go unnoticed, perfectly mistaken for a black dot on a white surface.
Today i will not scrutinize the details of a small plant, although i have her there waiting for your turn, today we will scrutinize the structure of a small insect, these small animals that are often associated with carriers of diseases and that in many cases can spread viruses.
The current state is quite different, today the carrier does not have wings or looks like an alien, today the carrier can be your neighbor, your brother or your mother ... today the carrier can be you ..
Strange reality this that we live today.
Let us hope that this pandemic will disappear as soon as possible and that it will not cause much more damage than those it has already caused ... until then, stay healthy.

My introductory thoughts about macro photography:

It's amazing how macros with their blurred background can result in such different images full of contrasts and textures especially with this kind of subjects.
In the world of photography, especially macro photography, there is a universe of things available to everyone, enabling totally different and original approaches.

Before moving onto the result...

Here i present the technique used through a short visual tutorial:




Among the various possible techniques to shoot macros, this is perhaps the most affordable and effective technique for those who have a camera with removable lens.
We can simply remove the lens and reverse the direction, and by using an inverter ring it ends up being more comfortable and facilitates the process.

Let's now move onto the result:






These photos weren't taken with a tripod.

That´s all for today :)


See you soon

Thank you for watching :)
