Three Bug Photo Tips

Published in Blog
Three Bug Photo Tips


Steve Berardi, the PhotoNaturalist, always has great nature photography tips on his blog. Today I read his article about photographing insects, which has a few simple yet sensible pieces of advice. He skips the obvious (about using a macro lens and tripod) in favor of actual insect-specific tips—like positioning yourself so that your shadow doesn't obscure the subject, wait for cooler weather when bugs are a little less energetic, and pick a spot and stick with it since many insects revisit the same locations again and again. I know nature photography is a passion for many readers, so if you've got a macro lens, extension tube or closeup filter, now you can pair those tools with Berardi's suggestions and increase your odds of making great pictures.
