Default I Got Lucky Tonight!

No, I didn't get a parking space close to the door at Wal mart.
Out in my shop, I found a little spider working over a wasp that was unfortunate enough to become entangled in its web. Tried out one of my new lights and shot through a white umbrella for a defuser.

#1. just the 540 flash.
Tamy 28-80mm


#2. Added a photo floodlight on the left plus the Vivitar 2X TC


#3. Now I added the Raynox 250 and my Britech 200 strobe to the right.

#4. Added a white umbrella, shot through it for defuser.


#5. Same set up but I zoomed out a little to get more of the wasp in the frame.

Hope you enjoyed these.

Indeed a great set. You have a much better grasp of lighting than I do. I prefer natural light for macro work so I don't have to deal with any flash setups.
