Hi Terry,

Have a look at my macro shots.


No flash, just natural light

D40 set to auto exposure with a reverse mount 58mm f1.4 slr lens. The reason to set auto exposure is that I don't have extra hand to do adjustment quickly to catch bee, fly shot. The chance to get that shot is around 5 seconds. The time is too short to do any manual exposure adjustment without flash.

No animals were killed/touched in the photo session

Handheld shot above ground around 1 meter.

Some NG photographers take photos in controlled environments, but the majority of the the images are shot in the wilds and on location.

Almost 100% of my own macro shots are taken on location and not in a studio. It is not that difficult to take decent close-ups that have impact. The main thing is, like all photography and filming, to use use your 'inner vision'.

Here are a few of my own favourite 'close-up' images:

The unusual often lifts an average photo to higher levels...


Sometimes a long telephoto lens can provide an extreme close-up

True Macro lenses are more-often the best tools:

Low & unusual angles are my favourite for Macro Fungi shots:
