After a long day of work and going to town I wanted to enjoy myself with my photography for the day. I do really love doing macro photography so that is what I decided to do.
I went outside and looked around for insects or any small flowers to photograph. Eventually I found this little grey woodlouse on a tree-trunk. I placed it into my hand and then broke a dead branch off of the same tree (so that it would feel at home when inside my home) to use as the prop it would be on.
I then set up my temporary studio on the dining table. Stick, white paper background, paper reflector, tripod and speed-light, and the woodlouse of course.
These were the only two photos that turned out to look really sharp and well composed. I hope you enjoy the photos of this interesting little crustacean.
