Am I the first to post a mosquito shot? The photo had been processed in PS due to ISO 200 was set and forgotten to set back to ISO 100.



The shot is hastily done up because I am really itching at that spot. The moment the shot was done, guess what? SMACK!

Comments welcome.

thanx ... to improve ur shot , seem like a bit blur due to low shutter speed , use a external flash ( 420EX ) and manual mode of ur G2. By overwriting the settings like 1/100 sec and f/8 , it will give a better effect.

I agree with you. I have a question, where to point the flash? Also, I am really itching at that spot and really rush to complete the shot. After that, the mosquito was flattened by my palm, with blood oozing out.

of course for such kind of shot , you need someone to help to take the mosquito .

For my pro 90 , I use 420EX + Omni Bounce tilt to 90 degree to take insect shots ... set to manual settings like 1/100sec and f/8


FYI , one who caught the mosquito was not me . It is Zhapchit :)

Where to get the Omni-Bounce and how much? Can post a picture of your flash + Omni Bounce? :)

Thanks a million.

I have visited the site, and I am getting a little confused.

There is the Omni, Two-Way Omni, Green and Gold and the Adaptor. Which one should I get? :dunno:

Also, I have to place order from the site or is it available in SG?

Thanks again.
