    got to use my xmas present today...the R1 kit.

    awesome is all i can say about it. for this shot i used the d300's tripod mode for AF. turned the sbr pilot lights on and it locked on AF immediately. BRILLIANT ! no mirror flip down here my friends.

    the R1 kit lets you get places you could never go with regular strobes and its sooooo easy to move the lighting around to dodge leaves, branches etc. this little guy was tucked into the middle of the bush, i just shoved my cam in there and positoned the sbr's, mashed the AF button and bingo....

    great exposure, nice natural looking colours, very few shadows, maintained very good light fall off for the DOF unlike proper strobes sometimes and excellent sharpness you can only get from flash. this is around an 80% crop, unfortunately i couldn;t get my cam closer. next time...

    you just need a macro lens. or get some extension tubes to use with your existing lens' and you're set.

    love the lighting and razor thin dof in this one and my model gave me a great pose. i just missed the focus point though, not quite right.

    Lovely capture! I just love everything about this photo..

    # cute spider..lovable and not scary like some other species
    # great exposure
    # great pose
    # nice composition.. love the diagonal division of the scene created by the leaf and two level of lighting above and below providing a nice contrast

    Overall, Great Photo
    You first see a photo with your mind, and then capture it with your camera!

    ty viky.

    1/500s, f8

    sbr1 off cam behind subject angled to left away from subject with softbox to highlight some green foliage but keep the right side distractions dark.
    sbr2 mounted, no diffuser directly at subject.



    ps: some terribly bodgy PS work here. i clipped the very top tip of his wing off so i added a bit to the top of the image, (lucky it was all black !), and then did some cloning. well i tried anyway. lol

    South American Moth

    It's summer in South America in December and Mister Moth or maybe Miss Moth was showing off. That's a string of Christmas Lights being used as a resting place.

    a couple from today. all with the R1 and 150mm sigma.

    i'm spitting about this first one. 5-10mm further up and i would hve had the shot. this guy flew up off the leaf just as i took the photo. the preflash from the onboard that triggers the strobes scared him off. this is the first time this has ever happened with a bug so it was strange. but its definately the preflash cos i tried again about 10 times and he jumped every single time. just couldn;t catch him in the frame. i will have to try this again. how cool and alien like do his eyes look !
