  1. I don't agree with putting a dragonfly in the freezer just in order for you to get your shot. It's the same when photographers put glycerine onto insects to say it's dew drops. Sorry, in my opinion it's unethical photography at its best

  2. "If you have trouble finding bugs." … people, we have a problem, insects are getting extinct, if humans continue with spraying poison and taking away livity anyhow for other life.

  3. You are so right. I took over 700 pictures of the honey bees in my wife's flower garden. Out of 700 I was only happy with 4 of them. I am new to photography a hair over 5 months now I started with a Panasonic G7 and I was happy with most of my results. Until I started to be my worse critic of my pictures. And I was able to try out a friend's Nikon d800 and I was shocked on how good of images I got with with little effort of the bees. So I sold my mirrorless G7 and bought a Nikon d7100 and picked up a 80-200 f2.8 and a older Nikon 35-70mm f2.8 and I am getting amazing amazing results. Your book also helped me too. But since I have been doing more outdoor photography of insects one shot is still impossible to nail it. But I see how a flash you draw more details out but I am still new trying to learn.. but love the show and your channel

  4. This guy Don is a legend! He approaches the creative art with such scientific intelligence! I learnt more about photography, even in general by just watching this than ten other videos!

  5. Hello guys. Thanks for the tutorial. I would like to ask you a question, which about macro photography. I have taken some photographs in raw format, but they are grainy, and struggling to get the focus very well! Any ideas that could help me to experiment a different way? I am using a Canon 5D mk iii. Canon 100mm macro. Regards

  6. So much information from your videos, I have to take notes. One interesting point from Don – LED vs xenon duration speed. Had no idea that LED was so much slower than xenon. Useful info for when I'm trying to freeze motion. Thanks to all of you for the great show.

  7. Thanks for having Don on your show. I learn something new EVERY time I watch him and I’ve done several workshops with him. His knowledge is profound and his suggestions make me want to rush into my studio or garden and try it out. Above all, Don is patient, and always offers encouraging.comment. Thanks Tony, Chelsea and Don.

  8. T&C, Next time you have Don on, ask him to expand on his answer to the question posed at 1:07:50 on f/no ranges. Considering the equation for depth of field scales linearly with f/no and inversely as the square of the lateral magnification, Don seems to be saying at higher mags (x5) that trying to overcome the DOF compression with aperture adversely affects image sharpness. Is that what Don is saying? And note Weston's Pepper 30 image was a macro shot at ~2:1 at f/240 and that turned out well for him. So this is a counter example which shows how diffraction could be used artistically for the right subject.
