    Default 580EX II for Macro

    Hi,

    Izzit 580exii external flash not suitable for macro photography ?
    I tried this flash with DIY diffuser on 100mm macro lens.
    for distant 15cm and above, the light nicely diffuse, but when
    i very close to the subject, it cannot diffuse and picture come
    out very dark.

    Any sifu suggestion ?

    Thanks in advance

    Could it be because ur lens is casting a shadow on ur subject since u are shooting so close?
