Hi Robert.

Thanks. :)

Working on making and practicing light moulding techniques.

My aim this year is where-ever possible, the viewer should not get a hint that the flash is used.

As they say, light is the holy grail in macro after sharpness. :D

I especially like the snail -- interesting subject, good light, and the polygonal bokeh works well in this one.

Thanks Rik.

Rain drops had accumulated on the lens. First I thought to wipe off the drops.But then decided to utilize them to my advantage.
I have also seen such clear shell for the first time.

For light, I am now using official Venus softboxes after fiddling with DIY options for the past year. They work beautiful if you know what you are doing.
