Hi everybody :)

Me and the stones and the stones and me.... Hit lightly, slightly, like someone calling me, will it be rain? will it be people? We
People certainly not because only stones hit like that.... Seriously, it's not an obsession, it's just the visual result of these macro photography sessions that fascinate me, these details, these sublime and striking tones. I simply like it and it gives me a certain relaxation....it could be worse :P

The rocks included in this catalog were meticulously chosen from a diverse array of stones gathered on the mountain. Through their diversity, they collectively offer a visual depiction of the geological features inherent to this region. Today i present two rocks chosen randomly from the board, called "Shades" :)

Let me present today’s model:

Before moving onto the result...
  • My introductory thoughts about macro photography:

The world of macro photography, is a realm filled with endless possibilities and boundless creativity. It is truly remarkable how the use of macros, with their ability to create a beautifully blurred background, can produce such diverse images full of contrast and texture. Macro photography reveals a world of details that often goes unnoticed by the naked eye. It's as if a whole new universe unfolds before the lens, inviting us to explore and appreciate the beauty in the minutiae of everyday life.

What makes macro photography so captivating is its ability to offer a new perspective on the world around us. With the right technique and vision, even the most mundane subjects can be transformed into works of art, each image telling its own unique story. There are no limits to what can be captured. Each object becomes a potential subject, where the ordinary becomes extraordinary, where even the smallest details can evoke a feeling of surprise.

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:

F-stop: f/3 | Exposure time: 1/800 sec. | ISO speed: ISO 1600

F-stop: f/2 | Exposure time: 1/750 sec. | ISO speed: ISO 1600

F-stop: f/1 | Exposure time: 1/900 sec. | ISO speed: ISO 1600

F-stop: f/3 | Exposure time: 1/800 sec. | ISO speed: ISO 1600

F-stop: f/2 | Exposure time: 1/750 sec. | ISO speed: ISO 1600

F-stop: f/1 | Exposure time: 1/900 sec. | ISO speed: ISO 1600

F-stop: f/3 | Exposure time: 1/800 sec. | ISO speed: ISO 1600

F-stop: f/2 | Exposure time: 1/750 sec. | ISO speed: ISO 1600

F-stop: f/1 | Exposure time: 1/900 sec. | ISO speed: ISO 1600

F-stop: f/3 | Exposure time: 1/800 sec. | ISO speed: ISO 1600

To finish, i leave you with some considerations regarding these photo sessions:

Examining miniature subjects using macro photography unveils a compelling domain where minute details acquire significant importance. Immersion in the intricacies of these diminutive objects enables the recognition of the frequently disregarded beauty within this microenvironment. Each image preserves a transitory instance, displaying the complexity concealed within the small-scale elements of nature. Macro photography's core essence resides in its capacity to elevate commonplace subjects to remarkable levels, presenting an intimate and captivating viewpoint.

The session is closed for today. Hope you like it :)
