I have to make pictures of someone casting a flyline. I tried 2 times now. The second time even made 200 pictures. BUT: it is not gonna work. We tried white and orange flylines, but the contrast is not good enough. I only want outdoor pictures. Maybe the sun was not shining enough? The oictures are needed, for an article in a magazine. So it means that they must be really perfect, because they need to be printed afterwards. My question:
who did this before his/her self? And is wanting to give me some practical hints?
Thanx in advance.

No, there is no budget to fly to Patagonia right now and step in a river with dark green trees/bushes in the background. I am in Holland, with no leafs on the trees.

Hans,

You did notice this little article?

Generally

- good light (low sun - perfect this time of year)
- dark background
- fat, bright, floating WF line
- short, slow casts
- short telephoto lens
- rapid frame rate

should do it

Hope this helps

Martin

We tried also two times... First time we did some good, but my body with camera is not flyfisher or fisherman, so he knew how, but he didnt know what... Second time was much more better, but it wants red line(in our case)...I choose few good...
