Hi, I'm back. I had a busy few days. I did not what to put up only one photo a day so I had to do some editing and catching up too.
Well, one of my brothers came up to me a few days ago and gave my this inchworm. I have always liked to do macro photography but I did not have many detailed subjects to photograph all the time. So, when he gave me the inchworm I immediately wanted to photograph it but I had to finish my schoolwork and other household tasks first.
In the evening I set up my photography workspace with an overhead soft-box and a light blue/green card for a background. I reverse mounted my lens to convert it to a macro lens. I put the Inchworm in a bunny tail grass (photo 2 and 4) and on another stick too (photo 1 and 3). It was tricky to photograph it because it moved surprisingly fast for its size (which is magnified through a macro lens!).
Photographed with a D5300 and a 50mm lens reverse mounted.
I edited it the photos in Photoshop, Color Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Camera Raw.
TIP: Use a piece of coloured paper or card to "brighten" up your macro photos. Sometimes white ore black looks a bit too plain.
Macro photos reveal the hidden details most people overlook, It is a very exciting genre of photography!
