I start this thread for the sharing of macro setups especially on the lighting part.
I want to learn more about the different diffused lighting used by our members here. I remembered seeing a photo of a group outing, someone has twin paper bags attached to the flash lights. It looked really interesting and I can imagine that it will work really well.
I will start the ball rolling with my odd looking setup.
Lens: Tokina 100mm macro lens
Flash: One SB600
Diffuser: NTUC Juice Bottle
The problem with my diffuser is that it sometimes cause harsh shadows when I'm not at the minimum focusing distance. At times, I hand hold the flash with diffuser, to bring it nearer the subject. But I prefer to have both my hands on the camera to adjust focus and to press the shutter.
The giant bottle also attract a lot stares from passerbys.
All are welcome to share whether you are using PNS or DSLR. I hope this will benefit all of us here.
