I don't like the way she's looking back at me...
Love them. Interesting looking bug you got there.
What a cool bug,
as always, great shot... Well done again!
very nice work again!
Is the flash a little harsh in these? doesnt look as natural.
How do you identify?
Thanks for the comments. Yes, the flash is VERY hard to keep from being harsh on shiny insects. These aren't too bad tho. I'm always disappointed with these kind of shots. The only way around this is to use natural light, but that's not possible most of the time. Even natural light sometimes ruins the image. Diffusers help, but I get mixed results with that as well.
I use insect books to identify them.
what are you using to diffuse that ring flash? I know the overexposed areas of the shiny bugs is a given, but i just meant it overall looked strong. I should definitely grab a book! i hate the fact that i have no idea what these bugs are that i shoot lol
The ring flash is pretty well diffused, so I don't use anything on it. If I use my 430, which I rarely do anymore I use the lumiquest softbox.
Oh ok, thanks for info.. I heard the ring flashes have a built in diffuser slide but wondered if people rigged up a DIY kit for them
Amazing details and great pics..like usual
Thanks for the comments.
I found a male today
Amazing shot yet again!
