One of the more common questions we get asked is "What do you use to take your photos?". So we finally took the time to film a somewhat in-depth explanation of what we do and how you can make your photos better.

The biggest take-away is to use the tools that suit you best and suit your budget. Combine that with some of these simple techniques we review here and even the photos you take with your phone will turn out better.

Although I review all of this in the video, here's a quick run-down of what's covered:

  • Lighting
  • Minimizing camera movement
  • Backgrounds and surfaces
  • Composition
  • Camera settings
  • Difference between macro lenses and phones
  • How to shoot flies on a budget
If you have questions, post on the video or post them below. Enjoy!
