When you’re stuck filming at home, it can be really hard to get an exciting background. Even when shooting macro images, having just a plain white wall behind your subject looks a bit bland.

With this project, you can add bespoke bokeh background blur, which means you can add custom creativity to your images, so your macro scenes don’t all look like they were shot in your kitchen!

In some cases, such as flower photography, a subtle, indistinct background may be enough to add extra depth to your images. If you’re photographing miniature animals, you can use this effect as a miniature green screen to add them to a safari scene (check out our DIY green screen photography tutorial to see how you can take this technique to the next level).

Reversal rings are seemingly obscure accessories for new photographers, but they offer a superb level of added functionality for your existing lenses – they turn a normal lens into a macro lens!

By attaching a reversing ring to the filter thread of a standard or moderate wide lens, it can then be mounted on a camera body in the same way as any other compatible optic. The attached lens, which may not have a macro function in its standard orientation, can now be used at very close focusing distances, allowing for high magnification.
