Lesson Learned

July 30, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

As a 42 year old man I've learned a very valuable lesson when it comes to macro photography of insects.  If you're going to take photos of these guys and have to work 1 inch away from them (due to the short 40mm lens).... MAKE SURE THE DAMN THINGS ARE DEAD!  

I could have sworn that this guy with the the killer spike for a mouth had passed on to the great bug beyond.  If you had left me in the pool for hours, that would certainly do the trick.  Not with this guy.   After about 30 shots, I looked again through the lens to see his spike moving and his breathing kicking in.  PHOTO SHOOT OVER!

Lesson-learned number two is that I can still scream like a little girl when necessary...
