    Camera to take photos of flies

    i use a tripod mounted nikon coolpix s9900 camera set to the "A" aperture setting with the macro turned on. this camera is also capable of HD videos but i'm not doing any of those i have 2 daylight spectrum lights as shown below. i use different colored paper/foam sheets from the craft store for the background and a sunpak led light that is handheld either above or below the fly i post process all of my photos using photoscape free editing software. overkill maybe but it works for me http://www.photoscape.org/ps/main/index.php i prefer to show the fly as the subject and not a cluttered and messy background. some folks may like it but i dont i do not get high quality photos using a cell phone background ideas countertop samples paint chip cards paper/foam sheets etc etc etc. be creative
