City, state, country:
Before discovering spider and insect macro photography I would suffer nightmares about spiders twice a week on average. Macro photography, and learning about spiders and insects, has cured my nightmares. Now I love to look at the amazing detail in these little creatures! I am an ordained minister by trade and a photog for fun. Many of the pictures on this site were taken with a Canon 50d and 100mm macro. Some were taken using a 150mm extension tube to get just over 3x life size (though it is super difficult to capture quality images with the tube). Lately I have been shooting with a Nikon D7100 and 105mm macro lens. The Bible says that the heavens declare the glory of God (Ps. 19:1), but so does the amazing detail found in the spider and insect world!
