In the Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter review
, I included a photo of a large spoonful of tiny balls of candy. I thought you might appreciate knowing more about this image, so I'll share the recipe:
1. Clamp a melon-baller (my large "spoon") over a clean black back-painted glass surface using a Delta Clamp
and fill it until overflowing with cookie/cake sprinkles (the tiny balls of candy).
2. Tripod-mount a Sigma 150mm f/2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro Lens
attached to a Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR
in manual mode with settings of 1/160, f/16 and ISO 100.
3. Mount a Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter
to the 5D III and configure a Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT Flash
as a slave.
4. Attach a Rogue FlashBender Softbox XL
to the 600EX-RT.
5. While handholding the flash and softbox, trigger the image capture using a Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote
The result is this image. While the reflection created by the Rogue Softbox is not as smooth as those delivered by more expensive softboxes, the reflection is not bad. One might think that a cloudy sky was the source the reflection.
Overall, I like the bright candy colors in this otherwise monochromatic scene. Images like this are easy to create with the right gear available.
