I can't afford a macro lens right now, having just blown my budget on speed lights...


...Anyway I shot this using the way cheaper alternative... ...closeup lenses. I got my set of 4 from ebay. This was hand held using a +4 on a 55-250mm lens. The focus plane is tiny, the optics horrible, and there is ghastly chromatic aberration everywhere, but still for 9.99 I can't complain to much. At least the speed-light let me push the aperture to f/22.

Vg start. Still better results you get when you diffuse the speed lite. I have taped some packing foam on mine before I got the ring flash.

Ahh thanks for the tip, I will have to try that. :)
