    Default Photobackground and fly

    One tips for background for your fly pictures .
    If you have 2 flash you can use one for the color of the background.
    Place a cellofan or gel filter on one flash. Place it behind the fly and use a grey backgrund. If you want a black background - do not let the flash point at the grey background.
    Here is a Youtube link that will inform you how to do it.

    Here is one picture with a old Kodak gelatine filter placed on the flash behind the fly and shot to a grey background.


    And one picture with one flash that was not pointed to the grey background.

    btw. the fly will never sink and is very nice for the people +50 ( easy to se the fly on the water). The white suspender balls is put into a ladys nylon stocking and tyed down to the hook.

    Nice tip, and nice fly. I use a diffuser on my canon flash, but there is nothing quite like having a "hair" light behind the model, weather it be a fly or a person.

    Thank you Larry
