Camera Setup

Camera Setup
Mobile (Dog River), Mobile County, Alabama, USA
February 22, 2010
This is my latest photo setup, experimenting with using inexpensive (two for $26 on eBay) 40 ws (90 GN) slave strobes. with my cheap ring flash. I will have to play with some to find the best setup, but just one strobe allows me to really stop down.

I am currently shooting with a Canon 40D & 100mm macro/1.4 converter. BTW my new joystick tripod head is great for bugs.


20 Bucks
20 Bucks say Hemberger will comment on my artsy scrim. All bets must be placed before he responds. Any takers?

Told you it wouldn't work!
The Bug Guide community is too astute for our chicanery. (Though some members of it are no doubt scurrying for their dictionaries as I speak.)

To all,I confess that C.B. and myself had a plot to split the proceeds of any and all bets placed here, but did tell him I thought none would be forthcoming.

As to the scrim, I'm guessing that mi' Lord is shooting bedbugs against mattress ticking. Tres Chick, Bob!
