Welcome to the strange world of my photography, as you may have gathered I'm a complete macro nutcase specialising in moths, insects and anything else that lives around us in the natural world.
I go out very occasionally to the meadow at the end of my cul de sac and just sweep around with a net, bring anything I catch home and shoot them in a studio environment, which has taken me what seems like forever to set up. Makes life easier for me to do it this way rather than aimlessy walking around field trying to put tripods up and down, fight with set-ups and walking sticks only to end up looking like a bent up deckchair with my spine all in spasm........
I rarely do anything in the field these days, although I can't resist the temptation of the odd dragonfly. When you think these creatures have lived for millions of years and fly better pound for pound than anything we as humans have ever invented, you just cannot ignore how interesting they really are! Finding them is quite relatively easy and they're easy to shoot as once located in the field and studied for a little while, you can with experience predict where they might perch too next, usually giving you plenty of time to set up up macro rig and wait around with a remote!......Game on!
