Description The hardest part of insect macro photography is finding a suitable subject, that is interesting and ... still.It needs to stay still long enough for me to set up the lights, decide on the composition and get at least dozen shots. One way to get it done is to shooting after dark. Some night insects are active and come out of hiding and the insects that are active during the day 'go to sleep' and if you find them they are perfect as they stay very calm.I found this cute fly sitting still on a leaf and I had enough time so I decided on a portrait.http://arekphotography.blogspot.com/Canon EOS 7D with EF 100mm f2.8L macro ISTv 1/80secAv f/11ISO 100Converted form RAWCanon Speedlite 580EX-II + 430EX-II
Arek Rainczuk, Melbourne Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement I’m a PhD candidate in Melbourne, working in microbial genetics. With all the hours spent in the sterile lab I find photography a perfect outlet for my creative side and a reason to take my lab coat off.
