A few years back my sons bought me a moth trap for my birthday. Fascinating to trap them, but I was particularly driven by the photographic opportunities that arose. Many trappers seem to photograph them in natural surroundings, by placing them amongst vegetation etc. But I was keen on keeping controlled photographic records. I eventually settled on a laminated grey card featuring a millimetric grid. And I was quite happy with the results .... UNTIL ..... yesterday evening. I was watching BBC's "I bought myself a rain-forest" featuring Charlie Hamilton-James who, when taking shots of all sorts of little creatures was advocating the advantages of "shooting on white." His insect photos were quite stunning, and I thought I'd give it a go. So I botched up a little white studio from an old shoe box and white card. Fortunately, I had a subject in waiting - a Poplar Hawkmoth which I trapped last night, and so was able to compare it with one I had previously caught and photographed. But now I've done it, I just can't decide which way to go - To continue with the grey card or to switch to "shooting on white." So I thought I'd ask any fellow photographers out there ...... What do you think?
