Photographing a bug on a flower can be exasperating. In this video, pro photographer Tony Sweet gives you tips on capturing a colorful dragonfly on a water lily bud. He spreads his tripod close to the flower and, through a 300mm lens with a teleconverter, shoots at f-18 to capture some background detail. You will learn why it’s best to stay eye level with your subject. Because the dragonfly is constantly moving, Tony recommends using manual focus. Auto focus won’t hold. It takes time and patience to capture a dragonfly in motion, but as pro shooter Tony Sweet demonstrates, it can be rewarding.
