How to Take Amazing Insect Photos at Home
Every year people around the world spend millions of dollars safeguarding their homes and apartments from bugs. After all, no one really wants to have insects creeping, crawling or flying around their homes, now do they? Well, sometimes those of us who love taking macro photographs of bugs will actually make an exception and bring creepy crawlers into our home studios for photo shoots. But you have to know the right way to do this in order for your pictures to turn out the way that you envision them.
Today’s macro photography tutorial is 100% dedicated to teaching you the ins and outs of shooting bug photographs at home. And this brave instructor isn’t using ladybugs or butterflies; he is photographing a real, live hornet. This is a bug that lots of people fear, so let’s take a look at this bug photography tutorial to see how this brave macro photographer pulls it off…
Remember, getting hornets or other biting/stinging insects to chill out isn’t difficult to do. A bit of time in the refrigerator is all it takes to make them a bit more docile. We always want to be as humane as possible when taking live subjects into our home studios, so please make sure that you treat any bugs that you photograph as humanely as possible.
