I recently came across an article of a scientific photographer who magnified the image of sand up to 300x which revealed beauty unimaginable to the naked human eye. Who knew that sand was an assortment of very diverse sorts of colors and crystals! It inspired me to try to attempt macrophotography with my Sonya6000 + kit lens.
I've heard my camera isn't the best at macrophotography but I figured I would give it a go because it is what I have. But my biggest concern is that there is an overall blur. When I zoom into my image, the details of all the nooks and crannies are just not as sharp as I would like them to be. From what I've seen from macrophotography the details are quite important. I was wondering if this would be the fault of my own settings or my shaky hands or if this would be the limitation of my camera?

Hi, this is my first attempt at low-key photography with sonyA6000 + kit lens.
I found a very dark corner in my house where there was a black wall. The lights were off, so I used flash to illuminate the object.
The wall was glossy, so I photoshopped the bouncing light out of the image and tweaked the exposure so that the backdrop was completely black.
The leaves were also naturally green but I changed them to red just for fun. Please tell me your thoughts
Also, has anyone achieved low-key photography with A6000 + kit lens without flash?
