    i wonder what his setup was. If I was that close to some of those things, I would piss my pants and run screaming like a high school girl at a jonas brothers concert

    wow! some great shots :cool:

    well, im not sure if they are capable of getting this close, but with a tilt shift lens you are able to get more of a certain plane in focus and maybe thats how some of these were done. or just maybe just a longer focal length where dof increases the further something is away... i dunno, im still a noob :o

    The vast majority of those critters were harmless to humans... The millipedes, Centipedes, and scorpions are the only ones that might have been dangerous as far as the insectile critters went. Then the crocodile and snapper as well. beyond that, there really wasn't any risk.

    "just remember, to those little things, you are godzilla to them, and thats why they freak out and try to attack you, but when it comes down to them, just stomp 'em"

    a lot of those shots are easier than you think, because they're actually still-lifes.

    I need to get access to one of these places. Cuz dead or not, those shots are fucking awesome!

    also, most of the danger leaves the scene when the aminal is dead.

    Focus Stacking... you take multiple pictures, one focused on the head, one on the abdomen or whatever, one on the body, one with the antennae, one with the legs, etc.. then you stack them all together in PP and come out with a sharp image overall.
