They're all nice but I love that last one; looks like saliva dripping from its jaws; if that guy were six feet long, we'd be in real trouble. Also thanks for the tutorial comments.


Thanks for the feedback -and you're right but I think we'd be in bad shape if they were only a foot long...

Awesome Series, Dalantech. One day I want to be able to do 1X more than your maximum (kidding, of course).

I love the fly, the eye is superb and what colour. The ants are spectacular too.

Hi there,

I think I asked you this on deviant art but I can't find or remember the answer, so here it is: You're using the MT 24 but would the MR 14 or the equivalent from Sigma do the job too? What could be the possible restrictions with these flashs?

Hey Philippe,
The short answer is "No." but it's the reasons why that get a little long winded. The problem with any ring flash is this: The flash heads are too close to the lens to give you really good shadows (even with ratio control) and the flash heads almost tough each other -and that too makes getting good shadows difficult. Last, and this something that I've just recently realized, both flash heads are fixed and therefor are at the same angle relative to the subject and the sensor. So that light reflecting off of a shiny area on the subject from one flash head will also have light hitting it from the other flash head at the same relative angle and harsh specular highlights will be all but impossible to avoid.

This thread contains images that I shot last year. Here is an example of what I can do with the MT-24EX now:







...and I just changed my diffusers so the next time I shoot this critter the specular highlights will look even better...

It's an old post from last year my friend -I've changed my lighting half a dozen times since then
