Strobist/Camera Info - shot using the Olympus E-3 and the Sigma 105mm/f2.8 Macro. Lighting was provided by two Nikon SB-28 flashes fired remotely using Radio Popper JrX's. I used a homemade softbox camera right and a homemade beauty dish camera left. ISO was set manually at 800, 1/250 @ f22. PP was done in LR 3.3 and the images were shrunk to fit web in CS5.
