Macro Photography

I took these photos in three different places. For the first three, they were fairly simple to capture. I set my camera on a tripod, set up a light (LED for the coin; phone light for the other two), manually focused, and proceeded to take a ton of pictures. I took all of these into Adobe Lightroom for slight edits on contrast and exposure.

For the last three photos, I took these at a greenhouse and one at home. The lighting in the greenhouse was great, and I didn’t need any extra light. I struggled with the movement of the plants, however, so it took a lot of tries. I used my waterbottle straw and an eyedropper to place the drops on the plants.
