Shocked

Amazing shots & coloring.. absolutely something different.. well done!!
My fav is the spider shot

Have you been using any IR pointer for these shots?
Also, are you using any kind of diffusing methods here? Some shots have some harsh light spots (eg #5)

Keep it up.. looking for more Smile

Hi Yousef,

I didn't use any IR trigger to capture those motions, even though I own one. Setting an IR trigger for those insects is much more difficult to me. I just made several tries to get it done. Taking shots of flying beetles is easy, but much harder for jumping spiders.

Either, I didn't use any diffuser because of the low strength of the flashes. I am still thinking about possible solutions to overcome diffuser issues for these kind of high speed photography.

Again, thank you for sharing this wonderful set with us.

Cheers,

Very nice set.

It's not easy at all to capture jumping spiders so it is a great achievement.

Almost too good. At first look they seem to be posed. Excellent DOF across the insects. Well done.

I can not imagine the amount of patience you need to get this pictures, they are very very good indeed!!
Maybe you just need a little bit more of light diffusion

Javier

Awesome! Shocked

Have I understood how you achieved to get the critters focused so nicely: You prefocussed manually and then let them jump in the focussed space?!

Very impressive. My first reaction was also to think they might be posed. It must have taken a lot of time to get these nice action shots.

For me, the most impressive is #2 and the most beautiful is #5.

Great shots. How much time did some of these take to get them to cooperate?

For beetles/snakeflies/lacewings, it took about 15 or 20 min in average to get it done. For jumpers, usually more than an hour. Smile

Shocked I loved each photo, and want to try it now! Smile

It is interesting how you were able to capture such nice bokeh with the small aperture.

These shots are bloody brilliant. Your timing is perfect. And such amazing detail. That must have taken lots of practice (trial and error) to pull off.
