Macro Photography Ideas at Home with Raynox DCR-250

Today I’m in the mood for some macro photography with my Raynox DCR-250. I have attached it to my AF-P 70-300mm kit lens and Nikon D5300. So let the macro photography begin!

Let’s begin with close up of some vegetables.

Let’s click my chessboard

Let’s take some safety pins. Bend them once around the middle. If you have a bigger pin, you may bend it again. But I like it this way. Now for the setup. I have downloaded a hearts bokeh background from Google and opened it on my laptop. My pins were placed on a pile of books. They look like two lovers.

Next I will place a glass of water. Put a straw in it to focus at the surface. And click a picture as I pour water into it to get this beautiful splash.

I have a bowl of water and I’m gonna drop some water slowly with an ink dropper and catch any shot. High shutter speed of 1/200 and external flash is needed. A remote helps me to click without any hassle. So I focus on the water surface by placing the dropper there. And start the action. I will press the remote when the drop falls in the bowl.  

I may add ink into the water to give it a different colour. You may add gels, milk, whatever you may have.

I will add some oil to the water and whisk the water a bit so that the oil unsettles. So I can get these patterns in the water.

I didn’t know my home is so photogenic. It’s amazing how the Covid-19 has taught me to appreciate my home. And photograph right here. I don’t have to go to Ladakh for photography, although I’d love to. Anyway, if you liked my photos, please give me a like and leave a comment.
