I probably shouldn't post this, as it is hand held, but these guys would not sit still ! So had to try and keep up with them and hope for the best....did a lot of deleting! LOL!
Thanks Hazim... I will try it as soon as I can. I know where to find the settings...I think! :-) I will let you know how I am doing...much appreciated.
Gary...you are so right! I read a lot and now need to practice with flash! I have not tried the stacking, but will be soon...I will then have to learn how to do it on the computer! LOL! so much to learn ...too little time! ;-)
Dear Sharon . The standard setting should your camera have it is TTL . This option will control the lighting that you need it for your subject . Hopefully you know how to find the flash settings in your camera , Any way lolkk if your flash have reset , press this bottom and then set the camera on TTL flash mode . Please let me know if that work with you . Happy new shoot .
Yep - lots of research and practice is needed for macro, as well as a large diffuser the ability to stack exposures is necessary because of the sometimes shallow depth of field at the optimum apertures for the lens:
This one one below was 5 exposures to achieve different selective focus on certain points:
Thanks Gary... Boy I have a lot of reading to do...don't know how to operate a light meter either!.....Hey... I don't get out of the closet much! ;-) I think when I get back to Canada for the summer I will see if I can find someone to teach me !...I read a lot, but it just doesn't sink in... I need hands on to learn. sigh...
Sharon i always use a light meter in these situations to get the exposure spot on.
Thanks Hazim! I have a Cokin flash. I don't have the adaptor to fit my lens. Not sure what I am looking for to connect it! (Very new to flash photography). Also when I hold it in place I don't know what settings to use... sigh... I need some lessons on using a flash. The fellow that gave it to me (which I very much appreciated) didn't have much knowledge of it either as he never used it! (My gain...free is good). So when I played, it was very much trial and error and holding the flash way away from the feathers as they were white. It was too dark in the house to not use a flash, but a real guessing game as to where to place the flash. Any help is GREATLY appreciated! :-)
Yes Sharon , What is the problem in your flash exactly ? Your picture here looks very nice .
I still have problems with my flash as it is not a good one. Your thoughts are appreciated.
