I must admit, I’m not crazy about bugs in general. I’m allergic to bees and wasps and absolutely hate spiders. But LordV’s macro photography has given me a new look on bugs and other crawling insects.
LordV actually sort of knows his subject. He is a retired PhD Microbiologist so I guess it is safe to say he is an expert when it comes to small/tiny things in this world. And bugs and insects are small although some seem huge and scary!
Until I read LordV’s short bio, I was sure he photographed his subjects in some kind of lab or macro studio. But that is not the case. He shoots them in his garden, in the UK. I guess you sometimes just have to keep your eyes open and your microscope in your pocket to find photography subjects!
I am always very impressed with the details in his photographs and how he can almost make me like these little buggers.
