The Macro Bug Portraits of Ronny Overhate Will Make You Happy


One of the wonderful things about working at Light Stalking is that you get to spend a good portion of your days wandering around the Internet looking at the works of some very creative people. Recently, I was lucky enough to stumble across the work of Ronny Overhate on Pixabay and his macro bugs brought an immediate smile to my face. So much so that I just had to share them! The sharp images with colourful backgrounds remind one a lot of Thomas Shahan's work, but for anybody who has tried to replicate the look, well… let's just say it takes a lot of skill and a superhuman amount of patience.

To see more of Ronny Overhate's work, you should check him out on Gurushots, Instagram and Twitter or take a look at the stuff he has uploaded at Pixabay.

Amazing talent. For years I have been shooting macro but lack the focus stacking skills and the incredible patience to get results like these. Truly amazing to see the world of insects at this scale.

Dear Thomas,
What lens do you suggest for Nikon users ????I own a D5100 and planning to buy nikkor 105 f/2.8 macro lens.Is there any alternative to that?Please suggest.
thanks in advance.
