Stephen Dalton is your man.. the standard against which all insect flight photography is measured
Try this guy
Particularly his setup
and some info about his gear that he completely self built
I admire people this dedicated.
Wow, that Stephen Dalton's gallery is amazing!
Thanks a lot for the info I have just been through Steven Daltons site Wow its stunning to see his shots isn't it I think I need about another 20yrs practice !!!
Does anyone know what camera he uses ?
What I thought was a "good shot" looks really feeble compared to his work but I will keep trying !
Thanks again for the info I will order his books and hopefully learn something from the Master
Why not send him a message via his website?
Most professionals are very friendly and approachable
Just looked at photoopa what a talented guy he is too thanks Henchard for the link he really does take his work seriously dosent he his set up is quite amazing but I cant see me carrying that through the African bush ! I think his work is terrific and will visit there again
Just sent Stephen Dalton an email I do hope he sends one back !
Both links are so worth a look,thanks guys.
Some amazing stuff there !
Brilliant John - I lost his links a couple of years ago when the last PC died.
He is the 'The Man' for sure.
Just how to make the everyday look incredible. Photography at its best, eh?
Also John Brackenbury is well worth a look.
Thanks Pete his work is terrific too, yet another fascinating set of images to see well worth a look at
What does it mean when it says high speed photograph is he using a special camera for that kind of shot ?
I really do have a lot to learn !
Another good link,thanks Pete..Love the Moths round the light bulb.
If I remember correctly people like Stephen Dalton use special short duration flash which gives an effect speed of way over 1/10,000sec. And a beam splitter to trigger the shutter at exactly the right moment. I think it's still highly skilled work that only a few have mastered.
