Praying Mantis, Yellow Gel Modeling Light

Eliza decided to do a photo project as well this year for the PTA art contest. She captured this praying mantis and then we set it up for a shot. We put some leaves in a bucket and then the mantis on those leaves. We set up one of the modeling lights from my studio set and then we played with the color gels. In the end she went with the more natural one. It is a good thing that the lens I picked up a few months ago has a vibration compensation since it was an extream close up and Eliza does not have the steadiest hand. I think that they came out pretty cool.
