Macro Photography Session | Small ecosystems
For this article about macro photography that I present today, I had to borrow a vase from my sister, that's right, at the end of a family event, before leaving, I asked her to show me interesting objects or plants to photograph and she accompanied me to the balcony of her house, and outside, among a spectacular variety of plants she keeps in small vases, allowed me to pick up a small vase and bring it to my house for this macro photography session.
Once in my small studio, that is, in the living room :P I prepared the light, positioned the vase with these small species of which I can only identify what seems to be a small cactus and started taking some pictures, always trying to create a peculiar environment, taking advantage of the blurred background and the incidence of light through different angles.
Regarding the shoots, 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.

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.
These photos weren't taken with a tripod, hence the unclear result.
