Backlit experiment.

Postby richardlbong » Thu Oct 29, 2009 6:34 pm

These shots were taken with 2 flashes, one behind the leaf where the pupae is, set as slave and the other on camera set as master.
Image
This shot is taken with the slave flash set at -3 FEC and the master at -2/3.
Camera is Canon 40D with Sigma 150mm macro lens, at 1/200, f16, ISO100/
Here the effect gave more prominence to the pupae and less attention to the leaf, though the veins of the leaf are clearly seen.
Image
On this shot, the pupae and the leaf, both grab equal attention. Here the slave is set at -2/3 same as the master.
Image
On this final shot the strength of the slave is increased to +2/3 but the master remain the same. Now the attention is drawn more to the leaf than the pupae.

That is a tear in the leaf which looked like silver when the rear flash lit it up.
