There are various macro related posts on this blog, my most recent post is at this link.

Soft box

Since that last post I have fabricated a ‘soft box’ to use directly on my Speedlight 430 EXii.Ā  Macro photography is undoubtedly tricky and getting the light right is critical, perhaps more so than when taking a ‘standard’ picture.

My home made soft box has improved the pictures and given me more flexibility but the light at times even with the flash turned down to 1/4 power and through the soft box still feels a little harsh and is giving me some unwanted light reflection, I’ll have another go when I have time.

In the meantime there’s a selection of pictures taken in the garden and set out in the gallery below

Clicking on any of the images below will open a picture gallery that you can click or scroll through.
