Nice find, Dave!

Quick summary for other readers...

Pro quality videography about the process of shooting still photos of insects in the wild. Pleasant narration, good pictures, sound and simple advice. Still shots are using modest equipment: a reversed 28 mm lens and single flash with a large homemade diffuser sitting right next to the lens. Illustrated subjects are mostly jumping spiders and several kinds of flies. Advice to learn the behavior of your subjects and shoot hundreds of pictures.

That's a good idea. I moved it, changed the title, and made it sticky. There's a lot of information in those few minutes of easy viewing.

I was sure SA recently posted a link to Thomas Shahan's website.

Here's the link again - to compliment the video.

The video is great and I enjoy the calm "NPR" voice he has. It's very reassuring and informative. I grew up in a very rural setting in the Appalachians of VA and I wish I had the camera then that I do now. I don't think I would have ever come home until well after dark.

However, his "handling a black widow" video takes the cake. I don't think I'm going to sleep tonight. However, if you really have the desire to film black widows, northern CA has the highest population of black widows I've ever seen anywhere else.

I am interested in field macrography but I'm also interested in the studio setting as well. I am interested mainly in flowers and certain insects and I just don't like having to pluck the plants from their environment.

I have watched that video over and over, at least 10 times, I even mimic his lens choice, a reversed 28mm Nikkor prime lens :-)
