Mantis (4)

    Newer Older

    'What could be more exciting as to sit in the grass face to face with an alien? The mantis has a stereoscopic vision and a small black dot on each eye which is moving. It feels like a close encounter.
    I used an Olloclip macro lens on my iPhone. Then I spoke softly to my model, “You are a fascinating creature. Very photogenic!” This conversation lets me forget the challenge to get a sharp shot. The depth of field of a macro lens is extremely small and as everybody knows insects are moving very unpredictably. At the end, I was quite happy that my patience and the patience of the mantis succeeded. Whew… I’ve got my photo series.' (Vanessa)
