Meet the Ringflash

Hi again friends!

In this post I’m going to write a few words about my experience with the macro ring flash. To be honest it’s a pretty limited experience as although I got this flash as a present one year ago I have only used it 4-5 times (indoors and outdoors) since then.

Insects … reloaded!

Hi folks!

After sharing some findings regarding shooting arachnids in this article I would say it’s time for another post about insects.

Capturing Its Prey

In previous post (Photography and Overcoming Phobias) I was telling you about how photography helped me put the fear of spiders under control by taking photos of them. Now I would like to continue to share with you some of my findings about this phobia.

Photography and Overcoming Phobias

Everyone has his/her own fears.  Like the song says “I’m only human after all”. But some of us even have real phobias like fear of the dark, phobias of large areas (agoraphobia), small areas (claustrophobia), mice, rats, other small animals and last but not least … insects and arachnids!

Insects (10)

Hi folks!

Today I’ll show you the last insect pictures taken this year. They were shot this month and I consider myself lucky that the weather was still excellent, as a few days later it got rainy and as cold as in winter. In fact it’s the first time I’m taking insect photos in October, which came to me as a nice surprise.
