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".

I rarely ask people to say cheese when I take group photos, but today I did real cheese photography. I've tried recently a La Corona cheese that was new in the selection of our supermarket. It was really delicious and while eating I've also recognized its very interesting structure. Yesterday I bought a new piece and before eating it I took few photos. I found the rim lighting as the best way to bring out the surface structure of the cheese:

Here you can see a bit my DIY fiber optic rim light adapter, so you can imagine the lighting set-up:

The photo was taken with a sony nex-5 and the sel30M35 macro lens on a tripod. A radio-triggered external flash provided the light through the rim light adapter.

Guten Appetit!
