Hello Mi Fans,
Introduction:
I am not really good at capturing macro shots of insects, but something makes me try again this time with a change - the insects are dead. Well the idea came when I was cleaning some of the house lighting, we all know that insects love light, so I found a couple of dead bodies, old and new. So lets try macro again, now that they won't move at all.
p.s Sorry for the disrespectful use of the poor insects.
Shots are taken using Xiaomi A1.


First I will introduce the lighting setup, please refer to the image below (Using another mobile phone as bottom light, insect(s) was placed directly ontop of it. Photos were shot using xiaomi A1 with additional clip-on macro lens. An additional light was added for the second and third specimens.):

1. First specimen.

2. Focusing more on the wing, but some pixels of the device below it can be noticeable.

3. Focusing on the lower body part.

4. Focusing on the head.

5. Specimen no. 2

6. Specimen no. 2 with additional light

7. Shiny shell, ugh... the bokeh due to the depth of field.

8. Changing the lighting position.

9. Last specimen for this time.

10. With additional light. (All images are cropped, you can spot a little of the ShotOnMiA1 watermark on the bottom right, careless mistake )



Conclusion:
  • I do need to get a better macro lens for higher quality shots.
  • So this thread has a little to do with one of my previous (link: [MIUI Photography Team] DIY Product Shoot), which made use of other devices for lighting. Hope you have enjoyed reading this thread of mine, till the next time, bye and happy shooting!
