Insects should be photographed where they are found. Under no circumstances is it acceptable to restrict their movements by chilling in a refrigerator or using any chemical that has the same effect.


Flowers should not be picked or plants dug up for nature photography in a studio set up. It is unacceptable to prune plants to improve the composition of the picture. The surrounds to the plant must be kept as close as possible to the original condition. Any repositioning of leaf, or other litter should be kept to a minimum and replaced as soon as possible. Removing other living specimens to improve the resulting picture is not acceptable.
