Here’s my second attempt at macro filming of living subjects. I used a tripod this time instead of my wobbly, frail limbs. As per the Great Barrier Reef documentary advice, I moved the whole camera/tripod set-up instead of changing the zoom and focus. I also used a Nikon D7000 in video mode with a wireless mic instead of a Sony HandyCam HDR CX-150 video camera.

Macro photography done well offers an incredible look at the mundane and everyday in a new, interesting way.
Here’s an interesting slideshow of insects shot using the macro technique:
Even the foreboding “hospital-of-doom-waiting-room” soundtrack couldn’t detract from these great photos.
