Go Little-Game Hunting



Some tiny subjects are harder to shoot than others. Check out this dragonfly, for example. To get a shot like this, you'll want to put your camera on a tripod and leave the tripod head loose enough to move the camera as you track your prey. Set the shutter speed as fast as it will go (or use action/sports mode), and apply light pressure to the shutter release to focus on the most important part of the critter. When you're ready, snap the photo--but take a lot of shots. You'll probably get a couple of keepers.
