This time Martin Joergensen is shooting fishing flies for a series of online articles and uses his usual home studio setup with a ringflash and a snooted SB800 as a backlight.

Show Notes: January 05, 2009

In the podcast Martin takes us through some thoughts about using a standard zoom as a macro as well as creating a black background in daylight flash images and using a ringlight for illuminating small things. Examples of the type of online instructional articles described can be found on The Global FlyFisher.

The sound file:

  1. Intro
  2. Tripod
  3. Black background in daylight
  4. Backlight
  5. Assessing results
  6. Bye
