yeah - that was a problem on the day really, light stand not high enough to point the light down (and avoid the shadow), too windy for a brolly to soften the shadow (would have blown straight over and smashed the flash), the main light had a brolly and an assistant holding it

lots of interesting issues to overcome with strobist, that's why I love doing it.

was on Scammonden Moor with 3 people in business wear and an assistant holding the flash... bare flash.... so windy it was hard to stand up

some cracking shots though, the wind made their expressions much more interesting and the sky was from a horror movie Wink

It takes all sorts, Ade. I suppose he must get a buzz out of it.

lol - nowt wrong with wasps.... but expecting appreciation from them is pushing it a little too far Wink

I photograph buildings and they never say anything, occasionally they'll creek I guess...

Sculptures and Carpenters and Painters and and competent person applying a skill in a creative way would say the same, their work does not thank them and their audience does often not understand them.
I sometimes only see what i want to see in my photo's but after i've forgot them if you showed them as yours i'd notice them far less positively than my own. One of my recent uploads had big dust bunnies all over it - i didn't even notice it till some one elese kindly mentioned it.

I might swat that wasp after having it pose for me, so i don't expect it to fully appreciate my capturing its last moments.

Now if i'd taught the wasp to take photo's then i'd be very interested in "its" photos.

Keep up the good fight there Alex you have some amazing weapons of a macro distruction and these alone are of interest Smile as well as all the things we'll never see without you.

Thanks guys GrinGrin

And no worries for those that went off at a slight tangent Tongue the words are well said and certainly might help a few who brows the site wondering similar thoughts (though maybe not worried about dangerous wasps).

Only downside is after a few days I've still not found the offending Wasp (it and me made a very quick separation once I found out what was on my hand). It's still out there -- somewhere!
