Amazing

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo I made in the countryside around Rome . A place I frequent often because rich in various types of insects
Time
For the macro I reach the place always before dawn to look for the sleeping subjects from the cold of the night
Lighting
Always using natural light helping with reflectors and diffusers
Equipment
I use a Nikon D700 with Sigma 150 OS on a carbon tripod Benro
Inspiration
The beauty of Papilio Machaon is indisputable. I love this insect and photographer every time I meet him . Find it with its caterpillar is a hit luck
Editing
I adjusted only WB and warmed the scene
In my camera bag
In addition to the D700 and Sigma 150 I can count on nikon 16-35 , 24-70 and 70-200 . If I need to use SB900 and SB800
Feedback
The main advice I can give is to be patient and get up very early . Carefully choose a clean background that is not going to annoy the subject and use a diaphragm between f8 to f16 to have everything in focus
