Trevor had a go at them last year and we knew right away that there were a lot more creative ways to cover this subject. The 2015 season has rolled around and we are now going to tackle these guys in a more creative way. The first thing is dialing in on a process for catching them.more
The season for photographing fireflies is already winding down and the weather forecast is for solid rain for the next week. It seems like we may not get another chance to shoot any more this year.
Below are a few of my favorites that are available for commercial licensing. They can be shared via the embed function for free for non-commercial use on blogs etc.
These are “hime” fireflies. They are also known as “kin” fireflies but technically are called heike fireflies. They flash rapidly leaving trails of dots.
Below are genji fireflies. Their lighting pulses leaving longer light trails.
Be sure to check out our guide to capturing them! If you have any questions feel free to post them in the comments.
