The Flash Strikes Again!

No, it’s not about rain and storm! In fact, everything was shot indoors, similar to these posts:

The Sky is on Fire! (Part 2)

In nature photography it is essential to always get a good lighting. Let me explain: not all subjects might be interesting at first sight, yet if you have a good light they will suddenly become atractive. The quality of light depends on more things such as: season, time of day (avoid harsh midday light), weather, surroundings (obviously essential for finding the right subject and composition too), etc. A full-time nature photographer makes some thorough research of all these conditions prior to taking the breathtaking pictures, which will later be published on magazine covers.

Droplets and Flash

Here some more pictures with droplets. This time I used an on-camera flash (with a collapsible diffuser) as the available light was pretty poor. Another solution would have been to use the tripod without flash, however I wanted to test the effect of flashlight on droplets. I find the results pretty amazing but I’m sure there is always room for better. I’ll keep you posted on my future “experiments”.

Enjoy! Any feedback is highly appreciated.
