John, sorry that you had to step in with the answer as I've not been as attentive (of late) to the board as I should. Suffering the curse of self-employment. That being said, your directions were excellent. I'd only add that the best tool I've found for applying those small amounts is a bodkin. I've also gone to using a bodkin to mix my epoxy. I lay it almost flat against the post-it padand fold the two components over each other quickly. It seems to create far less air bubbles as you mix.

Bob -

I'd like to ask about your photography methods too - I am faced with trying to do justice to the steelhead swap flies the last of which just came in the mail.

Can you provide some insight as to how you got such great shots?

Bob, That's right.. I forgot that you had told me that as well. I now use my bodkin for all epoxy applications.

if you get a bubbly mix in your epoxy, try 4 seconds in the microwave. gets rid of em. it will make the epoxy very liquid as well. and it will speed the set time up just a but too. Tom D

My home office is in an attic dormer (read "low ceiling height") and I have halogen track lighting right over my desk. I used the track lighting as my primary source and used the camera's flash for fill. Macro settings on the lens, tripod with remote shutter release. I still need to figure out the background texture, color, distance stuff. With macro settings you have a limited depth of field but I was still getting too much detail of the background. I also think it made a difference having the film processed to a digital output rather than scanning prints. Since I don't shoot digital directly (yet ) I can't compare those two but the digital shots that you had from last year were pretty impressive.
Might be interesting to see if shooting with kodachrome instead of print film..?!?

Are you referring to the ones I did of yours flies at SSully's tying clave during the winter? Most credit goes to the machine (Sony TRV900 Camcorder) since it has 3 CCD's.

Here's a movie of it as well:
