Blue Dasher Dragonflies – 400mm With Fill Flash

This is a series of Blue Dasher Dragonfly images taken with a 400mm DO lens, but I also used an on camera flash with a Better Beamer Flash extender to help fill in the shadow details on the dragonflies. Also for some I set the flash so I was slightly overexposing on the subject dragonfly. This way when I compensated for the correct exposure on the dragonfly, the background would be darker and a little more dramatic.

  1. I really like the color rendering in the details. It doesn’t look like the flash gives any reflexes in the eyes either. Maybe because it’s facet eyes.

  2. Magnificent shots! I liked all of them, especially the one with light background was my favorite.
