BEESNESS (a 2000fps slomo macro film about bees at work) – Image of the week #18

This was probably the most difficult shooting I’ve ever had. Being all alone that day made things even more difficult… If we forget ‘long term’ camera settings (frame rate, image size, or even exposure…), I had less than 1 or 2 secs to frame each bee, pull focus, let the damn bee fly away, and jump onto remote to stop recording.
Do I have to say I’ve been trying TONS of times to get maybe 10 or 15 usable shots ?

Despite those conditions, plus heavy sun, high temperature, skin burning, etc… I think good stuff is now available for everyone to see!

Camera was a Photron BC2 HD, that is usually part of the I-Movix Sprintcam v3, but used that day in a lighter standalone setup.
Thanks to my new EF mount, I could use a Canon 100mm macro L serie lens.
