Abtract macro
4

I started experimenting with macro a bit more.

This is just water and natural light after rain. It's a plastic surface (pencil/pen container, pink plastic)

I use RT color module to make it look metallic

I converted to B&W by mixing channels

I find the blurred areas may complement the narrow DOF when there are highlights

Focusing on the darkest part sometimes works out, unlike other kind of photos

I am thinking printing and making a small set that can be used for decorating some room. I have really never printed on canvas or anything. My house also has dim lights in general.

Is anyone printing photos that could recommend some options? Like canvas, glossy, etc. I am worried since it's a a highly saturated subject, how to print, and if there's any cheap way to provide the frame some illumination - some cheap way.

I am finding macro to be quite fun, but also, I am thinking if one gets some inspirations, one can capture abstract compositions that may be appealing to see. I am not sure if there is any site anyone knows or person that may focus more on abstract macro photography. I am thinking of images, that unless told you so, one may not know what they are, or may seem like detailed illustrations, but that are actually plain photos.
