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".

Snowflakes again

This is a subject I have to re-shoot again and again. Especially because I'm still far from perfection. Now I used an acrylic stand and I used the V3 adapter but only one arm with a flag. Bare fibers caused strange reflections. The light was angled in a way to not reach the lens, so only the diffracted lights from the snowflakes crystals reached the sensor. A kind of dark field photography.

In the last photo, you can see the light source.
