Hoverfly (in flight)

Post by puzzledpaul »

Pure stroke of luck job - apart from being in the right place, right time etc :)

Was just trying out a different flash setup/diffuser etc and decided to attempt a pic of this individual after it'd just taken off but was relatively still.

Canon 10d + 100mm macro (non usm)
1so 200
1/200, F11
HHeld
1600x1200 crop (rotated as per inset)

Impressive

Handheld inflight with a millimeter worth of depth of field would not seem to be a high percentage shot but you really made it work. Beautiful!

I really like the post-processing on this too. Isolating the fly and rotating him into the apparently more head-on orientation makes a world of difference. Very nicely done!

Thx, Doug, Rik - re the post work - I was only doing what I think everyone here tries to do ... get rid of unwanted junk and fill the frame with what you really want in it :)
