macro photography 99Every 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…


If that video lesson doesn’t get you itching to take some cool insect photographs at home, we don’t know what will… It is so cool to see an experienced photographer working with what some people might consider to be a very volatile, even dangerous photography subject. Hornets are certainly nothing to take lightly, but this guy was able to do so safely, and ended up capturing some very cool photographs in the process.

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.
