⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Anyone who loves nature and small creatures will be in awe of Eduard’s beautifully shot insect images. Eduard is truly an accomplished macro-photographer. His talents as an educator and his willingness to share his knowledge make him an outstanding macro-photography instructor. I cannot recommend his courses highly enough. Salvador Vitanza, Ph.D.- Entomologist Identifier – Arizona, USA https://elp.tamu.edu/ipm/bugs/
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ In an attempt to improve my insect photography skills I have spent four fascinating hours on Zoom with Eduard (Eddimage.com) instructing and advising me on how to best prepare (wash, clean, pin and unpin small insects ready for studio photography) and it was worth every minute. I have been doing this type of photo work for a few years but had got to a point where I was not at a high enough standard and unable to improve. So I called Eduard. I now have to go away and put into practice all that I have learned from him, not least that I must become more patient with my preparation and further develop my lighting and post production skills. Very many thanks Eduard. I have really enjoyed it. Terry Turner – Fordingbridge, UK
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I would like to thank you for last training session, which was thorough and well organized. The material was very interesting and the discussions were truly inspiring. I particularly enjoyed the visual illustrations, which made the content easily understandable. Antony G. Raj – M.Sc.,B.Ed.,Ph.D. – United Arab Emirates
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Absolute gem experience – Eduard is beyond talented and passionate about macro. He shared not only great tips, but his gear as well. During our bug-hunt in the wild, he allowed me to try and test some of his equipment so I can experience the different tools. Also need to mention his advices are game-changers, he is a great teacher – he not only guides me through the process but also thoroughly explains it all so I can understand the roots of my challenges. Can’t be more happy with this course – it was fun, progressive, I have learned a lot, and it opened a new dimension of possibilities in my macro universe. Ewelina Oszust – London, UK
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️As we were extremely satisfied with the first lesson, we decided to book more, and this time we took advantage of the package deal. Eduard created a personalized package of four sessions on topics we were most interested in. The information we received was, as usual, clear, to the point and very useful. We recommend this to anyone. Thank you very much Eduard for sharing your knowledge. Tine and Jean-Pierre Vercruysse-Herman – Belgium
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you Eduard for helping us take our macro photography to the next level! A few weeks ago we booked the package deal, and last Sunday we had our last two-hour session. The session had been pre-planned and tailored on our needs and interests. It was interestingly educational from start to finish and Eduard’s enthusiasm was contagious. We learnt a lot of new points of view, and explored interesting applications of equipment and setups. Don’t hesitate to book more sessions. You will be better for it. Tine and Jean-Pierre Vercruysse-Herman – Belgium
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Eduard is an expert with a real passion for his subject. I found the sessions informative and fun, delivered in a relaxed style but clearly with a lot of forethought and preparation on his part. He provided clear recommendations based on years of experimentation, appropriate for my level of experience and aspirations, proving invaluable in saving me both time and money. I would highly recommend it to macrophotographers of all levels of expertise. Bob Damms – Cambridge, UK
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Learning from Eduard was one of the best experiences of my life. He is wonderful in many ways. He is very knowledgeable and really knows every bit of photography. After meeting him you come to learn what a professional photographer he is. The sessions are very engaging and I would highly recommend everyone to meet Eduard, if you need assistance in professional photography. 5 stars is well deserved. Dr. Sundus Zahid – Ph.D. – Pakistan
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Being an admirer of his work, I decided to attend one of his new lessons on Specimen Preparation. I was very satisfied with the explanations throughout the session. I received a lot of details and helpful practical advice. Everything in the lesson was above my expectations and it is definitely worth every penny. Thank you for sharing your knowledge Eduard. The session was inspiring. Tine Herman – retired – Belgium
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I enjoyed our conversation yesterday. Your work is beautiful, and it is obvious that it is a work of love. I think you can be sure that your images will endure long into the future. As we talked about, I feel that recording earth and its inhabitants in the here and now is important on a lot of fronts. Unfortunately, the rich diversity that we have now will continue to dwindle until mankind wakes up (maybe too late). Preserving these images for future generations, I feel, is very important. As to the lesson itself, I found it quite enjoyable and pertinent. Because I have some background in entomology and collecting, some was review, but having said that, there were many perspectives and details that were new to me. I loved it. I would like to get more into the nuts and bolts of your art, hardware and software. I might spend some time with Helicon Stacker prior to our next session. It might make our discussion more meaningful. I am looking forward to our next session. Thanks for your time. Robert Chiavarini – Portland, Oregon – USA
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Since taking a number of lessons with Eduard, we decided to get more involved in macro photography (focus stacking in particular), and following his advice, we purchased a stacking rail. And of course we booked another lesson. This time it was a practical hands-on session. Pre-meeting, Eduard took his time to discuss with us via video call all technical details of the session and planned carefully every detail. Once again, the session itself, was full of extremely useful information with practical demonstrations and examples. Additionally, Eduard took the time to offer very constructive feedback on one of our images we had shot after the last session. We cannot wait to put into practice the wealth of information we received today. And since there are two of us benefiting from these great sessions, we promise not to compete too much with each other. Thank you Eduard, we will be back soon for more tips and tricks! Tine and Jean-Pierre Vercruysse-Herman – Belgium
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Eduard Florin Niga is a master of insect photography, and his two-hour course on procurement and preparation of insects for photography is a must-watch for anyone interested in this field. His expertise and passion for the subject are evident from the start, and his easy-to-follow presentation style makes the course enjoyable and engaging. The course covers a range of topics, including how to identify and collect insects, the equipment and tools needed for proper preparation, and the techniques for mounting and positioning insects for photography. One of the most impressive aspects of the course is how comprehensive it is. Eduard takes the time to explain everything in detail, providing not only step-by-step instructions but also valuable tips and tricks for achieving the best results. One of the key takeaways from the course is the importance of proper handling and preservation of the insects. He emphasizes the need to treat the insects with care and respect, and he provides guidance on how to avoid damaging them during the preparation process. He also explains the different methods of preservation and storage, including how to use chemicals and techniques such as freeze-drying. Eduard’s course is well-organized and easy to follow, with clear and concise instructions throughout. He also provides excellent visual aids, including detailed images and diagrams, to illustrate the various techniques and processes. This makes it easier for viewers to understand and replicate the steps on their own. Overall, I highly recommend Eduard Florin Niga’s course on procurement and preparation of insects for photography. It is a valuable resource for both amateur and professional photographers looking to take their insect photography to the next level. Niga’s expertise and passion for the subject are evident throughout the course, and his attention to detail and commitment to proper handling and preservation of the insects is commendable. Anyone looking to learn more about insect photography will find this course to be an excellent investment in their skills and knowledge. Marius F. – London, UK
