Top gun pilot can get xxm anytime. Cheers up. Gave him the Tiger.

Royaux - To minimize shadow, one can buy the expensive ring flash or macro flash.. another way is to properly diffuse the lights... One effective way (shared with , by SteveWhy.. true macro master) is to cut a film of that whitish plastic from Meiji Milk bottle .... crafted so that it can sit onto the end of the lens (with help of rubberband)... being so close to the subject, the on-board flash on it will diffuse the light nicely to rid alot of the disturbing shadow... hope that helps.
