Ever since I can remember, I have been passionate about entomology (the study of insects). Alongside my passion for entomology I had developed a passion for photography which, I realised, could be combined with entomology to educate and show people just how amazing insects and other small creatures really are. Since many insects are rather small, macro photography is the only technique that can be used to observe these small creatures in detail. My video on macro photography is a short introduction into macro photography, where I discuss all the gear that you will need (or already have), how to set up your “studio” to take macro photos and explain some of the important aspects of macro photography. Macro photography is a way in which you can explore the world of small creatures around you and share what you have discovered with other people, because that is how we all learn.
