    I made these shots in the butterfly garden of Amsterdam Zoo. For these shots i placed the flash under the leaf where the subject was sitting on. So i got this funky green belly light.

    There are some more threads i made with more shots of this day. Here are the links:

    Butterflies *funky lighting*
    Butterflies *the regular shots*
    Some insect stuff

    I processed about 60 shots, but they arent all in these threads. For the rest of the pics you can go to www.daanschouwe.nl

    Those are really nice and I love the effect. However, I need to come back later and view them cause the contrast of bright green to black didn't help my headache any....lol. I always love your stuff though.

    You were kind enough to first post these AFTER my headaches were over ;) ... but then they are GREEN, and how could any GREEN photo make headaches for me go worse, I wonder, especially if the GREEN comes from the leaves of GREEN plants! What a clever idea. (Now I even more seriously want a remote mount for my flash so I can use it further away from right-on-top-of-the-camera!)

    The idea came from another shot i made that day. I was shooting a cocoon and accidently had my flash behind a leave. When i looked at it, it looked like someting i could repeat. It was all very grean, but i liked it.
    Thanks for the replies, really appriciate it :D
