More cave photo & flash exercise

Jarmo, Jukka, and I spent Sunday testing cave photography techniques again. I also got to show the Korkberget cave to Jukka who had not been there before. Hopefully he liked it.... to me it is by far the most interesting cave in Finland.

Although I also remembered that it is a harsh environment... with very sharp edges and small passages.

But back to photos! We first tested basic flash setup and backlight in the tunnels leading to the Kauniainen underground sports hall. Then we went to Korkberget with Jukka, to take a few photos in the cracks that Jukka is good at exploring. (Jukka holds the Finnish record on passing through the narrowest cracks.)

I think we learned something more, particularly about flash photography in large tunnels. We can use my small/medium-power flashes even in these tunnels, but the results are not quite as spectacular as maybe with larger flashes. And it was fun to try and take photos in the narrow cracks, as our backlight exercise so far had been in larger tunnels. OK results, but still much, much work ahead.
