Molix' Mini Fish Grip studio shot

Is one light enough? It depends on what you're looking for. In this case I didn't want the whole product to be 100% discernible, hence I put one 40" Lastolite Umbrella Softbox (big soft wrapping light) with a SB800 and bang!

Thus, if I wanted to have the right side of the grip to be more visible I should have used, at least, one reflector or another light with a softbox for example. This way is more of an emotional and dramatic shot rather than a straight product shot.

Comments are apreciated, thanks.

Swan against black background

Don't know how you guys feel about this kind of images. Looks a tad unreal, with such a black background, but thing is that apart from few blotches it was pretty dark already. I only edited to make it completely black, in order to have the swan popping out against it. Looks like a "space swan" to me, but I do like the reflections and the strong contrast

Close up of a Red porgy caught on a Virago soft plastic

Lately I have dropped a bit the ultra wide angle lenses and put back the old Nikkor 35mm f2.

There are several reasons for me for such change. I'm looking for different framings, the focus is very accurate (something that is very important on a D7000) and I can get pretty close to the subject.

This lens allows me to shoot some cool close ups and most of all delivers an amazing amount of details. Open the full size version of this shot and you will see it by yourself.

Too bad the Nikkor 20mm f2.8 doesn't seem to be such a good lens otherwise I would have dropped it in my bag already, there's a nice second hand offer.
