Lighting Test 1 | Small Fly
Hi, this is basically a quick test to see what i could get by moving the flash i have in different positions around the fly whilst taking the images.
For 3-4 hours today i tried to get some stacking done of quite a few different insects i had lined up, all of which failed because when i would get close to finishing, i would realise that part of the fly was out of shot meaning it had been moving slowly out of the lens as i was photographing it OR the tripod (broken) was shifting every time i wanted to focus on something else.
Although i was in a bad mood i decided to throw this together even if i wasn't happy with it. As always, i don't walk away from something unfinished, especially if it's artsy.
Micro metre (auto)
DIY holder for rail
2x LED lamps for better lighting !
More patience when taking the photos :D
I would like to thank Gary (GeeTee55) and Craig Taylor a lot for advice given to me and i will take it in good favour and get to work putting their great ideas into action !!
Comment on the problems with this photo that need sorting, then i will post another one with a different (better) setup and see if i can distinguish them for good :-)
