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".

Mushrooms (I)

I love mushroom photography but it's really difficult to create something outstanding. There are many good photos on the NET, so I thought that creative lighting could be the key to take different photos. I'm experimenting a lot (would like to do more) with the twin-flash adapter and it works like charm. So I just post some recent results including both macro and CFWA (close focus wide angle) photos:

 I used nex-5 with 16mm lens + fisheye adapter. This combo has a god center resolution as you can see from the crop below:

However, it's not so good when we shoot towards the sun. I miss the star effect I liked very much with my sigma 15mm fisheye lens:




And a macro (but more will come):
