Entomology professor Dr. Thomas Eisner from Cornell shows you do not need a fancy DSLR camera to produce stunning photographs from Nature. Using a black colth and a color copier, Thomas shows us that with some ingenuity, amazing photographs can be taken without the aid of an expensive camera. He explains his process making it sound simple:
It was like playing with a Lego set. There were only two provisos. Parts had to be laid out upside down on the copier’s stage, because the copier ‘sees’ the stage from beneath, and the arrangements, once composed, had to be covered with a black velvet cloth to exclude ambient light from the picture.
