Taking photos of bottles is a lot harder than I anticipated. Had an image in mind and never got anywhere near to achieving it with just one off camera flash. Although quite pleased with this one, I think that preparation is essential. I will need to ensure that I set this up properly next time. Could do with a way of modifying the flash for a stripbox type spread of light and a couple of whiteboards around the bottles for fill (Instead of propping the Mac up next to them as I did for this shot).
Imagine my delight when the humdrum and otherwise normal Thursday evening of pointless TV was interrupted by the discovery of a dead fly.
Armed with the off camera flash, wireless triggers ant a 12mm Kenko Tube, I first drew some stick like pictures and posed the corpse. You know the stuff, staircases, horses etc.
None of these were particularly good, so I just tried different angles for the flash, at different power settings until I came up with this.
Can’t be bothered to do much processing so you get it here in all it’s dead, and decaying glory….. Quite like the ‘expression on it’s poor dead face.
