you are posting too many of these great macros to pay all of them the attention they deserve!
do you crop by the way?
This one i personally might want to crop to a 2:1 format.
thanks Alex. I did crop, just decided to give him lots of room. Thanks for the feedback
awesome. i can't decide between this one and the rhino bug.
Do you do all this with your 100mm macro lens? I've been looking at getting a macro lens, or micro as Nikon chooses to call it, and I can't decide if the 60mm would be long enough, or if I should go with the 85mm or the 105mm or maybe the 200mm. I love your work and it's very, very sharp. So yeah, just let me know what your equipment is for your insect shots, because they are SO SHARP!
thanks guys. Yes, I use the 100mm. The longer the focal length the more working distance you'll have from your subject. Makes it much easier to prevent scaring them.
Thanks. Glad you liked the Rhino. That was one of my favorite finds
Thats on cool looking hopper..awsome picture!
I'm sure you must have answered this before, but how do you light your shots?
thanks for the comments.
Chris- I use an external flash connected directly to the camera with a Lumiquest softbox.
