Yeah, I was pretty much standing in a bush while leaning over it at the same time to get this. Worth it though.
I think I might have added a tad too much sharpening though.
I am loving this softbox.
Yeah, around here its getting closer to the end of the season and its harder and harder to find them. My usual dragonfly pond is empty so I've been going to this nearby lake and there are a lot there! They are just harder to get to than the other place.
Been hunting Dragonflies and Butterflies like crazy and working on my macro skills. I just can't get enough of these guys. One thing I have learned is that there is a lot of patience needed to get close to them!
Let me know what you guys think.
I like how they will turn...
Thanks a lot Overread!
Yeah, I've been looking at that Lumiquest softbox. Right now I am just using the diffuser that came with the flash. I am planning on making my own softbox here real soon.
I went out just a few minutes ago and was able to get these. This guy was real patient with me...
Well, I got a SB-800 yesterday and had a chance to go out this morning to test it out.
Its my first flash. I have never really been into flash assisted photography but had to get one ever since I've been doing more and more macro.
So, C&C welcome as well as any other tips, especially any...
Its cause they are plain jane vehicles. I think in order for pictures of autos to be interesting, they have to be of nice ones.
A jeep and a Chevy truck, you can see those any day of the week.
BTW, love the sandals!
Thats what I need, is a flash. So, far I've just been shooting when the sun is high and giving me enough light to open it up but still there are situations where you need extra light.
I haven't gotten that close to a dragonfly yet. They are very skiddish.
I would love a setup like that...
