Every macro photographer will run into a great looking flower with character, but the angle you want to shoot at has a horrible clutter background and you can’t do anything about it. All is not lost, you can insert your own background. Photograph and print your own backgrounds and just place them behind the flower. Now some may say that’s cheating, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
Here is how you do it. For a green background find a grassy field or even the grass in your backyard. This is how the subject looked on my first background shot.
Now just turn the focus on your lens till it becomes out of focus and a solid color like this. Now I have a nice solid green background.
