Ants can be difficult models, especially those with a prima donna attitude. When you shout instructions to move closer, they sulk and climb on your lens instead. Call the agent for a re-shoot the following week and they’ll claim he or she’s already dead from old age. This ant on a fibre optic cable was less than half a centimeter. For this model shoot, I used the Olympus Zuiko Digital 35mm macro lens with the EF-25 extension tube.
