Mantis Mania V

    Newer Older

    One of the most alien insects that I shoot.

    Tech Specs: Canon 1D Mark III (F13, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (@ 2.5x) + a diffused MT-24EX (-1/3 FEC and a 1/4 CTO gel) and a 320 EX (1/4 CTO gel) set to group C and slaved off of the MT-24EX to illuminate the background.

    Rodrigo P. Elizundia, w andrade, and 25 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      I've seen lots of different mantids. Green, whitish, red, gray and black. But NEVER copper. That's very cool. Congrats!

      Great shot! Are you using the slave flash on a bracket or a stand and how do you find it? Thanks

    15. Dalantech 33 months ago | reply

      www.flickr.com/photos/muzby1801/ Just on the stand that comes with the flash, and I like it (although it sometimes creates a specular highlight that I don't like).

    16. Muzby1801 33 months ago | reply

      Ah thanks for info John, how does that work then if you are standing up - or are you using the slave on a table? Also can you tell me if you use it in ETTL or manual and how do you find the recycle times? Many thanks

    17. Dalantech 33 months ago | reply

      I'm just using it on a table, and normally in E-TTL mode (adjusting the ratio between the three channels as necessary). Recycle times can be slow depending on the condition of the batteries and how long the flash fires.
