Hi all,

Did a simple writeout of the topic on Insect Macro Photography. The info inside is based on my own experiences, so the techniques and settings involved are more biased towards a specific model - Fuji S602Z. Of course, they can be used as references for any digital cameras as well.

Those interested in insect shooting please feel free to have a look and please forgive me if any technical terms/interpretations/explanations are incorrect. ;)

I've got this question, though it's not related to your guide.

If you use flash when taking macro shots, won't it scare the insect away? Or do they just ignore the flash?

shadows are more threatening than light to them...
