Macro Photography

When photoshooting an orange blister beetle in the butterfly garden of Banabitan (Saltlake, Kolkata) with my friends.....I made this composition to give the viewers an idea how close you are!

For macro-bokeh photography, you need to have a sharp eye and to conceptualize/visualize the whole frame before the photo is taken. The next part is to focus the subject at the front with a steady hand and sometimes it is very tricky with the dimming light and the atmospheric condition. My prefered time is the fading light at sunset when the background blur is at its best even with a f/2.8 lens.
