    ABOUT THE INSECTS I SHOOT ..
    all the insects in my portfolio were alive (unless they were being eaten) & have been photogaphed in their natural surroundings ..
    any moisture you see would be either from the dew or rain ..
    helpful to have your own light source .. i use a Canon Speedlight 580EXII external flash with a Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce plastic diffuser ..
    Kenko do a set of three extension tubes which i use in different combinations .. the Canon100mm macro lens without the tubes is great too depending on the size of the insect ..

    UPDATE - April 2019 - since writing the above i am now using Olympus mirrorless almost exclusively for insect macros and everything else .. :) ..
    camera - Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II ..
    Lens - Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm 1:2.8 Macro Lens
    Flash - Olympus Fl 900-R ..


    thankyou DPC for the wonderful ppl i've met .. the fantastic education .. and a keen interest transformed into my most satisfying creative outlet ..xx..
