Macro Photography: A Closer Look To The Wonderful World of Bugs and Insects

September 20, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Photographing bugs and insects in your garden is one thing, but challenging yourself shooting them in life-size is another thing. That's where macro photography or also known as photomacrography comes using special lenses. Macro photographs are taken from extreme close-up range. This allows the image on the sensor plane to be equal to life size or greater.  However, there are a range of other ways to achieve the same end such as Close-up Lenses (close-up rings), Reversed Lens mounted on the camera using a "reverse ring mount adapter", Extension Tubes and Bellows - to extend the lens' focal length enabling it to enlarge.

Despite their reputation as pests, the trillions of insects, bugs, and spiders that inhabit the Earth can make some of the most fascinating and dramatic close-up photography subjects.  Insects and their tiny environments offer the macro photographer an unlimited amount of color, texture, and physical architecture to explore. They are as unique as we are, and they are obviously much more plentiful.
