Macro Photography Session | Sinister Nature
![sojpft.png](https://img.esteem.app/sojpft.png)

### Hi everyone
Back to another session of macro photography.

For today's session I chose these two species which when combined result in a dark and abstract register with their asymmetrical shapes and slight contrasts and yellowish and purple tones in an almost monochromatic simplicity.
It is in its seemingly simpler creations that nature dazzles us with all its complexity and its inspirational work.

Without more delays, let me present the models

#### 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...

Feel free to check some of the previous macro photography sessions with a technique short description:

* [Macro Photography Session | New Cactaceae family](https://steemit.com/photography/@aleister/macro-photography-session-or-new-cactaceae-family)
* [Macro Photography Session | One more Species ](https://steemit.com/photogrphy/@aleister/macro-photography-session-or-one-more-species)
* [Macro Photography Session | Curious Scenarios](https://steemit.com/photography/@aleister/macro-photography-session-or-curious-scenarios) 
* [Macro Photography Session | Aloe Vera in Perspective](https://steemit.com/photography/@aleister/macro-photography-session-or-aloe-vera-in-perspective)


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

<center>![qpm6pm12ej.gif](https://img.esteem.ws/qpm6pm12ej.gif)</center> 

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:
