    They are really amazing Scotty!
    Especially "lily of the valley" (Convallaria maialis)
    it's my Favourite flower. And the little puppy.
    I'm a fan of black and white pictures.
    They are so realistic as if you can touch them!
    Great work! indeed

    very nice.

    i always wondered how one can take photos of insects so close, and yet they don't fly or run away. could you shed some light on that?

    Thanks all! When it comes to insect photography it's almost like fishing....the more patient you are...the more rewards you'll reap. I can't count how many bugs have taken off on me, but I have always found that if you go out just after a rain they seem more cooperative. (Around where I live anyhow)

    whoa! cool stuff! We've got some critters around our house this time of year that you would probably dig. Huge spiders with super strong webs.. I've done the web dance so many times coming out of our front door. It's like they do it on purpose. Maybe they've got awesome digital cameras too and are catching snaps of us like we do of them.. hmmmm...
    Anyway, nice job!

    I LOVE THIS STUFF!!! i've tried myself to take some photo's like this but my lens aint powerful enough. i have an olympus mju:400 and its an awesome tiny camera and stuff, the only problem is that i cant change lenses. anyway, enough about me, i love this stuff. i especially like the colour fly, its really cool. i'm just wondering, would it be ok for me to use some of these as refrences for sketches? also, do u have larger copies of each of the pictures, they could be so useful

    cheers, and keep up the absolutly awesome work

    Thanks all! I actually use a Nikon Coolpix 2000. It's not and SLR so I'm stuck with just using the macro setting on the existing lens. I'm getting a Canon Digital Rebel SLR soon, and wait 'til you see the shots I'll get with that puppy...I can't wait! I never use my tripod as it would hamper my shot more than help it since I must chase down a lot of my subjects. Thanks again for the feedback! :hello!:


    Andre- Sure you can use the shots for reference....I use them as reference for my sculptures actually. However, you'll have to use the existing shots here.....I keep the bigger ones for printing and selling. :chug:

    Are you going to shot bugs with the new camera or you will undertake
    with something quite new?

    some of these really gross me out!.. and I mean that in a good way, really. These are so cool. I took a photo of a bee the other day.. and it made me think of your work. I should post it and get your feedback. It's so gnarly to see these guys so close. Very nice stuff.

    Decided to take a day off from sculpting, and do some photography. (wasn't raining, windy, or too sunny)

    Some didn't turn out quite as I'd hoped, but that happens sometimes to us all I suppose...thanks for looking .

    Hey! All I'm using right now is my Nikon Coolpix 2.0 Megapixel. I've pushed it to it's limits for sure, and am currently planing on upgrading to something that'll give me more freedom. I doubt I have anymore bugs than anyone else actually.....just go out there and look under leaves and closely at plants...I bet you'll be surprised what you find.


    Changin' gears a little.......

    love the b&w one with the bee facing you so simple ,but so smooth to look at
    the b&w bell flowers are beautiful, all the rest are top notch too. oh also the spill one, very slick! the drops are placed perfectly,( it almost looks like a foot in the spill) do you see it?

    Thanks all! I do see the foot actually.
    All my photos that I've previously posted will be gone now due to my website being overhauled, but I'll just continue one from here.


    Last night we had some amazing colours go across the sky, and the clouds were really whispy....here's some shots of them. The wind currents and the setting sun were really putting on a show. (I haven't seen a sky like this before....it was beautiful)

    Great updates! The fall is really amazing with its colors!
    The fourth "D"is my favourite, what contrast!

    All next shots are also wonderful! It looks like you've had a great time!
