You can create art from unassuming subjects… a garden full of weeds is alive with opportunity if you have a taste for macro.
You don’t even need a macro lens, you can give it a go by purchasing some inexpensive macro filters that are sized for your kit lens or to add onto your phone camera.
Shift your perspective, macro encourages us to look down, but examining things from different angles, and looking up can provide an array of interesting imagery opportunities!

CLG Advanced Grad created this beautifully abstract Self-Portrait by experimenting with a slow shutter speed!
“I crouched down from standing to achieve a vertical motion blur. It was shot indoors using side window light, with a shutter speed of 0.3s and an aperture of f/8. I set the interval timer setting on my camera (Pentax K-30) to take a shot every 3 seconds. This let me to experiment with various poses/movements without having to run back and forth to set individual timers or concentrate on using a remote.”
