Praying Mantis Portraits

September 13, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I'm really enjoying combining my experience with studio lighting and my love of nature and bugs. It is like taking portraits of alien creatures. This mantis was very easy to work with and would just watch me with the same curiosity I watched it.

My little buddy when I found him in the park. After our shoot, I set him loose on my 12 foot tall sunflower in the backyard.
