    Hi, thanks for the comments. Although the shutter was open for one second, it was in a dark environment and it was the flash that captured the shattering bottle, effectively giving a shutter speed of approximately 1/38000 of a second as the two flashes I used were on 1/128 power.

    Thank you for your clicks and comments, and to Cookie Monster fit the UA.

    I haven't converted the photo to B/W yet but probably will at some point. For once I was quite happy with the color version.

    Good luck, remember to have camera with you all the time, even if it's only the one on a mobile phone.

    Thanks all

    Correct, very low cost locusts Tongue


    Quote:did you try chilling him down in the fridge for a wee while beforehand


    Yup, did that, tried completely freezing one too. I also made a kill jar with ethyl acetate. The problem with both of these methods is that the frozen specimen froze in odd poses and the kill jar method kept them soft and supple but they were to limp, the jaws for instance rested on the floor and the antennae got 'brewers droop'.

    I think I'm trying to be a little too ambitious at the moment. I was trying for a stack of 40-50 shots and although the camera was set to fire automatically, leaving me to concentrate on adjusting the focus rail, it was still taking a little too long.

    More practice required. Smile

    Quote:was it multi-shot.


    Yes, I've downloaded the 30 day trial of Zerene stacker. Trying to get to grips with that also.

    Great series. The natural world can be beautiful and brutal and you've captured both in this set.

    Quote:Awesome. V6 is my fav. Shutter speed at 3.1 sec got me even more buffled.


    Hi Tony, it is the flash that catches the action. The photographs were taken in a darkened room, the camera was set to the required time (in this case 3 seconds) and the flashes activated on a sound delay trigger, in this instance I was using the Triggersmart system.

    Thanks for the comment and vote Grin
