Macro photography is always a huge hit here on Light Stalking. The incredible bug portraiture of Thomas Shahan remains one of the biggest all time articles on the site and our tips on photographing bugs was also pretty popular. Today we wanted to share a collection of what can be done with a macro rig and a common house fly. We think you will agree that the results can be pretty impressive!
