This is my first attempt at shooting bugs.I found it harder then I thought.Reading every article I could find made it sound easy.Trying to keep these little guys in focus takes practice.all comments welcome I could use the help. thanks..... Frank
You would be hard pressed to do much better than this. You were right to throw some flash at it - the more light the better (small lens opening for depth of field). Focus is perfect. Image is crisp. Wish I had taken it.
Very nice shot, and glad you realise that these sort of shots are not as easy to do as many think.You should try it with my lousy camera.I am lucky to get three good ones out of twenty.But this is very good for your first attempt.Photography should be versatile so hope to see more bugs from you.
Thanks to all.etfon, it was not easy.I was influenced by the lighting on your
Cicada photo (great) and Gav's macro work.I like this one but prefer frequent fly-er in POW.
