Welcoming my visitors
If you haven’t known yet, my room, for reasons unknown to me, seem to attract the most exotic of bugs sometimes allowing me the chance to shoot a subject I have not encountered before in the wild. Most of the time though I just get to shoot bugs in a different environment without all the grass, leafs and greenery.
The above shot is a good example of what I am talking about. Found this beetle hanging onto a piece of string. Instead of shooting it from the usual front and side views, I decided to shoot it from the underside of the bug. An angle I believe we do not see everyday.
And here is… well, another fly. The interesting thing here is the fly was actually resting on a wall lamp. Hence, as you can observe there are no shadows whatsoever on or under the fly. Makes for a good high key shot I think.
I have many other shots of various bugs that came into my room. However, I have to admit that nothing beats shooting macro outdoors. Bugs and a white wall, it can get rather bland sometimes.
