Technique: I found this little solitary bee feeding on a Dandelion and cast my shadow over it to see if I could get its metabolism to tank. In cool weather (it was 15C) small solitary bees need the heat of the sun to keep them going. The bee flew to a leaf and I continued to shadow it, and after a minute of being motionless I moved in for the photo. I made sure that there was a leaf behind the bee to keep the background from being black.


Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 2x) + a diffused MT-24EX. This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Technique: I couldn't get the angle I wanted for this portrait, so I picked the leaf and braced my hand on a fence post to help keep the scene steady and so I'd have some color in the background.

Thanks :)

E-TTL on the flash since I can get closer to the correct exposure using FEC. I'm hoping that when Canon does a refresh of the flash there will be more control over the power out (current flash can only be adjusted in full stops).
