Hoverfly – “In Their World” Series


I was in the middle of a large clump of oak leaf hydrangea blooms, looking for comps and as always, the light.
I had all of the reflectors set to fill in the shadows, camera on the tripod, exploring with my eyes while looking through the lens, when this little guy plopped down into view.
He was kind enough to let me get a couple of quick shots, then he was off again to explore his own world.

  1. Could you go into detail about the reflectors? How were they used in this shot?
