Hi Clay, does the type of light matter much such as fluorescent, etc.?

Comment by Bruce Tomaselli on May 15, 2016 at 4:23am

Whoa, what else would work? I never herd of that stuff.

Hi Clay,

Thanks for the help. What materials did you use to make the light tent? Cool!

It's a praying mantis, Bruce. He was hanging out in my back yard and gave me some photo op time. Cute little bugger.

Comment by Bruce Tomaselli on March 28, 2016 at 4:27am

Cool photo. Is that a katydid?

Good morning, guys. This looks like a fun forum. I hope to contribute some decent fishing pics as the season progresses.

That wasn't as big as I thought it'd be.  You can see the blend of colors, but you can also see the two original colors as well.

To get really good macro shots, you want a tripod to mount your camera on, and a timer setting.  I'm actually free-handing my camera, but my wrist is braced against the wood rail that the jigs and coin is resting on.

I'm currently using an Olympus Tought TG-620.  It's shock-proof and water-proof to a few feet, at least.  I've never tried any underwater photography, but I have gotten it wet before.  Not to mention dropped and knocked around a few times.

My camera has two different Macro modes, a Macro and a Super-Macro.  I typically take pics of flies and jigs in Super-Macro.  Over the years, I've realized that I just do not have enough lighting inside the house to take proper pics.  I've resorted to only taking fly and jig pics outside under natural light.

I've been playing around with powder paint for jigs the past several months.  I've got a few custom colors that I've mixed myself from two different powders.  To the naked eye, at a distance, they blend very well.  To the naked eye, up close, you can just make out how the paint is a blend, with little particles of the original colors here and there.  In the following pic, taking with Super-Macro on my camera, you can't see the "blend", just the two different colors mixed and interspersed together:

Your on the right track Bruce lighting is a must. I my opinion you will also need a decent camera my thoughts would be a good digital SLR. When I was younger I always had Canon SLR's now that I'm older I kinda shied away from them but learning cheaper ain't better you pay for what you get. Now I'm trying to get back into good macro pictures for flies, I have the camera it's been so long since I used it it's like starting all over again. Lighting is the key no mater what photo equipment you have.

Comment by Bruce Tomaselli on July 12, 2015 at 5:53am

Does anyone have the plans for a small photo studio to take pictures of flies? I'm trying to get portrait quality, but I can get the lighting and background right.
