  • Speedlight Test

    I recently bought a speedlight for my camera. Here's are a few test shots. I think after I get a better handle on it, it's going to improve my photos nicely.


    Feedback gladly welcomed.



































    Thanks for looking.

    I don't know if it has"improved" your shots or not, but those are some nice shots of some beautiful animals!

              With specimens like those as the subjects of your photos, you could scan a faxed copy of a Polaroid and it would be just fine.

                      Thanks. I have a Nikon D7100. You can do great with a D3200 or D3300. Buy good glass. A 60mm or a 40mm macro lens. The glass makes all the difference.

                          Since you're using a speedlite, consider shooting at F22 to get better depth of field. ISO at 200 and exposure on 250 and adjust light output to get the desired results. Using a light meter would help set that light output otherwise automatic will get you close. Specially if shot in raw so you can adjust exposure a few stops if needed in post production.

                          I'm waiting to get an additional speedlite so I can shoot both off camera to control shadows and use a wireless on camera transmitter to control the two speedlite or possibly three to completely eliminate shadows.

                            All that photography talk is over my head, all I know is you take exceptional photographs of your exceptional animals.
