Insect Art

The setup is simple.

Setup Shot

  1. Wait until dark.
  2. Turn on a hot light pointed up.
  3. Take long exposure pictures of the insects that fly above the light.
  4. Tweak the images so that they do not look so boring.

  1. This is an awesome way to capture movement of insects at night. It is beautiful, as well as painterly. Wonderful imagery!

  2. Thanks Mindy! When I first saw the shots I thought they were rather boring but with a little post-processing they became works of art. :)
