Macro Photography at Night

Post by fisheyeadventures »

Hey everyone,
have you ever been out in the forest at night to take some macro images? I discovered some really amazing chameleons, praying mantis and spiders last week.
At night it was really special, because it as super easy to spot insects with a flash which normally hide at day time;) All images were taken with my DIY Flash Diffuser, a6300 and 90mm macro lens

Great stuff! I enjoyed watching that. One thing I would like to try at night is to use a ultra-violet LED flashlight in the forest. They are not expensive, and they can make some creatures fluoresce. Not just scorpions, but several other arthropods too, I have learned.
