What is your light source and diffusion? Posted 2 years ago
I used a white cylindrical glass lamp shade as a diffuser (dia. 150 mm min.). I put the insect at the center of the lamp shade, as deep as possible (at least 100 mm) with the flashes installed at 800 mm away and set with the minimum power.
The most difficult is to keep the insect in position. Here, I've left the insect in the fridge for a while in order to numb it temporarily. Posted 2 years ago
