Methods in Macro Photography

Hey! In an effort to answer some of the questions I get about how I go about taking macro photographs - a few months back I put together this video which should help answer some of your questions:


Keep in mind my methods rapidly evolve due to available equipment, subjects, and ideas that come along. A lot has changed since I first started posting photos on flickr back in 2007 or so - but the thrill of discovering and sharing new arthropods never seems to fade! I may hop from one lens to another - change my flash diffuser every month, but it doesn't really matter what I am using at a given moment - the joy comes from getting the shot and (hopefully!) communicating the beauty of whatever insect or spider I'm shooting. I really appreciate all the interest!


Although it's essentially just a buddy account for "less cool" photos - I post quite a bit more regularly over here:
