    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 ..

    i shoot with Canon - 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 or III ..
    Lens - Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm 1:2.8 Macro Lens
    Flash - Olympus Fl 900-R ..



    NEW UPDATE - 2020 - now i shoot with whatever takes my fancy at the time ... Canon or Olympus or Samsung galaxy S9plus ..


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