It all depends where you are standing …..
A style of photography not seen so much these days – but it’s still a challenge to get a setup that works and to light it appropriately.
I hope I’ve succeeded in both those aims.
A macro shot of a Crane Fly taken on the Olympus EM-1 MkII
I used a 60mm macro lens, single flash and a small soft box.
I got two shots – this was the second – before he got bored and flew off.
Well, it does look like one, doesn’t it?
A studio shot – two flash heads, reflectors and some Photoshop magic for the textures.
Blossom, blown from my neighbour’s tree!
Is it just me, or is it rather late in the year to see so many spiders’ webs in our gardens and hedgerows?
These were all taken on the EM-1 with a 60mm macro lens and an off-camera flash unit.
Something I’ve been meaning to try for a while – and this morning whilst out for a walk I picked up a Sycamore seed ( there’s probably a proper name for this. Oh well! ).
Anyway, it lead me to this …
Strawberry, Kiwi Fruit, Grape … and the Sycamore Seed. All taken on perspex backlit with a single flash – and captured on the Nikon D800 with a 60mm macro lens.

A studio set-up, taken for a Photography Club project on ‘shadows’.
Balloons, cornflour and sharp objects don’t always mix!
Taken with a D800 and four synchronised flash units. The camera shutter was held open on ‘bulb’ and the flashes were fired by the audio trigger on a PhotoTrigger unit.
Great fun, but it can get quite messy with all that flour flying about.
