Behind The Lens

Location
The great thing about macro is some days the photos come to you, this was one of those days when I found a fly in my back garden
Time
It was evening, I was about to fire up the BBQ when I saw the fly and dinner had to wait
Lighting
Was still fairly bright but I use a flash with most of my macro pics.
Equipment
This was a canon 5d mkiii, a canon mp-e65 lens and a canon mt24 ex flash
Inspiration
I love trying to get in close, and eyes are really interesting, when the fly was so still it all came together.
Editing
No need on this one
In my camera bag
Usually a couple of maco lenses and a couple of telephoto prime lenses for wildlife.
Feedback
The flash makes a big difference as it allows a small aperture and more of the shot in focus. Be patient and move really slowly
