Photographer Joshua Coogler captures detailed closeup photos of ants that will give you nightmares. Joshua uses a Laowa 25mm Ultra Macro lens to capture sinister close-up pictures of ants. Coogler captures every nook and cranny of these ants, whose faces almost look like masks from a horror movie.
Coogler sets the lens, which can be used on full-frame cameras, to 5x magnification allowing him to get closer to an ant’s cranium than most would dare. He also uses two gooseneck LED lights that he diffuses with paper towels.
The resulting images bring out details on the insects that the human eye could never get close to seeing, nor would some of us want to. Reddit users may have seen Coogler’s scary pictures of ants being posted in the last few days, with one post receiving over 65,000 upvotes.
