The thing about abstract macro photography is that possibilities are endless, especially if you have a bunch of (semi)useless crap at home, like me! I found some screws, placed them in front of my camera and for the background I used couple of glasses. One flash was pointed directly at the glasses, so the highlights produced a nice blueish background. I actually didn’t need that gel on the flash, because later I decided to process the images as black and white. Other two flashes were shot through softboxes, one on each side.
I used my old Pentacon 50mm lens, with a macro extension tube, so I could get closer to the subject. Aperture was set to f16, just to make depth of field slightly wider. Shutter speed was set at 1/200 of the second.
