Taking A Morning Stroll
2 years ago|185 views |Macro

This shot was taken a few months ago on a nice breezy Sunday morning. I had started my escapade around 6:30 in the morning. This lucky shot came in about an hour later around 7:33am (as per file records). I was lying on the grass, flat on my stomach in a sniper's pose, hand-holding the entire bulk of the A77 and the Manual M42 Bellows + Extension tubes set and Rodenstock lens reversed. Attached to my camera was my HVL-F58AM flash with my traditional Macro reflector/ diffuser atop the flash, set on manual at 1/8th power. Another Yongnuo YN560 manual flash was mounted on a mini light stand with a diffuser set as an optical slave on 1/8th power setting, inverted and rotated all the way down to be about 4 inches over the area I was photographing.

My target were the tiny droplets of water on the fine grass blades. As I determined the focus and was ready to take the shot... this tiny intruder came up on the grass blades for a stroll.... Superb timing I must say... Ended up with this lucky shot. ; ))

Sometimes, bending down this low, is the only way to conquer!! ; ))
