EMWL100 in Photography Gear and Technique Posted October 10 The clouds parted yesterday so I finally got to shoot my EMWL in the nearby lake. I used a somewhat hybrid approach - remote polecam - bonfire backwater - muck - freshwater UWP! Water was maybe a foot deep. I used a single Retra pro at 1/4 power. Because of the 100 degrees of the lens I used just the protection ring as a light modifier. I may try something narrower the next time, maybe this evening but rain is predicted to re-start at 2200 which is when I was shooting last night. As well gale force winds are forecast... I did not want to deal with mounting the lens shade in the twilight (I set up during civil twilight (ended about 20:45) but was wearing a headlamp). There is a lens flare in all the shots - slightly off-center likely due to my strobe placement which was not perfectly centered but pointing more or less straight down (modeling light used for the "bonfire" technique). The pic shows a Threespine Stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus), which is a widely distributed species. I tried a different approach at showing a 100% crop. I made a virtual duplicate in LR that I cropped to ~800 pixels on the long dimension. The white things look to me like leeches - an African Queen moment!
