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".

Praying mantis

Few recent photo with the the 30mm macro lens and fisheye converter combo. It rocks, but can't be used as a standard wide angle lens. Focusing is also tricky and it should be nailed precisely. I was on a not really successful mushrooming trip with my father and my daughter when they found some praying mantis on the meadow. This insect is a perfect hunter, a master of mimickry and not really shy, so it was a perfect model for my photographic experiment. The sky as a background was also perfect with it's dark blue with white clouds. I'm happy with the results:
