This blog is devoted to the application of optical fibers in photography. I have several homemade (DIY) flash adapters channeling the light from the flash close to the lens. The technique can be used mainly for macro photography, but I will show examples for wide angle close focus techniques as well. The recent version is called fiberstrobe V3, hence the name of the blog is "fiberstrobe".

The rain can be OK but not when it's combined with wind. So I can post only some photos taken inside my flat. Nothing really fancy but they prove the concept:

This picture was taken with bare end fibers without any diffuser. You can see from the shape of the shadow that the light is coming from the two upper corners. The rest of the pictures were taken with standard diffuse light:
