Focal Point

Another attempt at a naturally-lit macro shot. Used f2.8 as my opening for this one to get the fastest shutter speed possible and blur out the background. What’s never apparent at least in any of my macro shots is the effort it takes to get a decent point-of-view. These bugs can be skittish at times which is why you need to either get down on your knees or even lie on the ground and contort your body to get the right angle. You need to make the least amount of movement when shooting which is why I like the early mornings when they’re still sleepy and laden with dew which makes it harder to move (I assume).
