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".

Few days ago I’ve visited Sweden for a short business trip. Between two events I had a bit of time for sightseeing and photography. I also went to a botanical garden in Lund that was full with fantastic flowers and absolutely not shy butterflies. Unfortunately I had only the kit lens and the 16mm+fisheye lens with me, so I had to improvise for macro photography. My previous post was about a kind of freelensing, so it was just the perfect time to try again. Stunning results, considering the simple set up, in my opinion. However, it’s not for people who are always afraid of dust spots on the sensor. I had some, maybe partly due to this freelensing but I’ve also changed the lenses a lot. After I got home, I cured the sensor with DUST-AID Platinum Kit. Now, few selected photos from the botanical garden:

The lights were perfects so there was no need for artificial lights. It was enough to take care of the lens and not to drop it onto the ground.
