So you want to be a Macro photographer

Ok, for ages I have toyed with the idea of trying out macro photography. Normally I end up leaving this thought on the back burner thinking it's a lot of trouble to photograph bugs. Any hows today I stumbled across this great video by Thomas Shahan's video on shooting bugs, his results are pretty amazing and would be a very good bench mark of quality to aim for if your thinking of selling bug photo's on DT. Many of his pictures can be seen here on his website : Thomas Shahan bug pic's.

This shot is not by Thomas but used to give an idea of the type of shots he captures.

Enjoy the video :)
