For the hand thing. Basically, i take the left strobe off the camera and hold it by the front with my fingers covering the element and some gaps between my fingers. It takes a lot of adjusting and obviously a subject such as a nudibranch that doesn't move much as it takes a few photos to get the positioning correct. The reasoning for me doing it is the fact that YS120 strobes only have half and full power, no other settings, sometimes i have to do that if i am trying to shoot with open fstops. However, i also do it to create different lighting like that last nudi :D

 

 

Mike - Thanks for the info. Going to Bonaire in a few weeks - will try playing with the strobe to see what kind of effects I can create with it. Keep up the show from Lembeh.

I really like the perspective of Beauty and the Beast, much nice than the flat images people take of these with the 60mm.

Hi Mike,

 

Thanks for sharing the great photos. The one with the tongue parasite is an awesome shot and highly freaky. It really impresses me what you're able to do with hand-held strobes and selective lighting, especially with the longer lenses.
