Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in June 2014 at my home. I picked a small flower from backyard, I sprayed with water and I started to shoot. I was amazed by hidden beauty of little ”Pinky”.
Time
Usually I lose track of time when it comes to macro photography, this was taken around 6 P.M.
Lighting
This is a result of indoor macro so I used two desk lamps for lighting ”Pinky” was placed on top of a mirror to redirecting light from top to bottom of the flower.
Equipment
I have a Reversing Adapter Ring for macro and I use this with the kit lens 18-55 mm inverted. I put a piece of stick to block manually the diaphragm, I used the tripod and the remote control. It is a cheap equipment for macro, but with a little practice, the result may be great.
Inspiration
I don't think it was really inspiration, It was more experimentation through practice.
Editing
I increased the saturation of colors a bit and manually sharpen the edges of front details, in Photoshop.
In my camera bag
I own a Nikon D5100; 18-55 VR and 55-200 VR lenses. I have also a Nikon BR-2A 52mm Reversing Adapter Ring for macro, Nikon ML-L3 Wireless Remote Control and Bilora 1221-SE tripod. That is the equipment I usually carry around.
Feedback
My advice is patience, especially in macro photography. If you shoot two picture and you think it's great, it's not. Have patience to catch the better one. Have courage to try new things. Most of my macro pictures I took through experimentation. I took everything I thought it could be photographed and insisted on that subject. It is a whole new world in macro, enjoy it !
