I would say the lighting is spot-on. Great work Rense.
Thank you Rob! Would have liked the reflections a bit more under control though....

that is really nice.

i love shooting snails in macro then quickly stir fry them in butter, garlic and cream.
Haha, thank you! Don't know it this one is a good species to eat: quite small (the house is only about 5-7 mm)

Good shot... I know first hand they are tough to shoot. Shy and not very cooperative.

Well done on the reflection... how did you keep it so black?
Thanks Gus! Although they are slow, they are quick enough to run out my DOF...:ugh:
The reflection: I put this one on a black shiny tile used in bathrooms etc. It's not easy to keep it completely black with a flash, but I did some work in pp too....

Great shot, Rense. Are the "eyes" at the ends of the stalks?

Do you always carry a black bathroom tile with you?

Thanks! Yes, they are, although the eyes can only see dark an light, as far as I know. So really sharp sight as we have is not given to snails.....

About the tile: no, I use this one at home.....
