Meet the Ringflash

Hi again friends!

In this post I’m going to write a few words about my experience with the macro ring flash. To be honest it’s a pretty limited experience as although I got this flash as a present one year ago I have only used it 4-5 times (indoors and outdoors) since then. However I would like to share with you some impressions.

Photography and Overcoming Phobias

Everyone has his/her own fears.  Like the song says “I’m only human after all”. But some of us even have real phobias like fear of the dark, phobias of large areas (agoraphobia), small areas (claustrophobia), mice, rats, other small animals and last but not least … insects and arachnids!

Snails

Snails are another fascinating sub-genre of the macro/close-up photography. There is a high amount of species and although many of them are much bigger than insects (so it’s more closeup than macro), it is still worth capturing them on the sensor. Here some pictures I took last spring after accidentally “meeting” a few of these creatures near my house.

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.
