“Trying” to hide

"Trying" to hide, originally uploaded by madcalabrian.

This spider was well hidden within the fold of a leaf. People always ask macro shooters how small insects are found with such frequency. If you want to maximize your time shooting you must scan individual leaves (front and back) and look in areas that are not very accessible. Often times you will find insects either hiding waiting to ambush prey or well camouflaged insects blending in with their surroundings.

It also helps to shoot with a friend shooting macro. It’s amazing how many subjects can be spotted by multiple people.

:HINT: :COUGH: Come on Jim / Alan – We have to go out and have a macrothon. Having the three of us scouring an area should yield a ton of photo opportunities.
