I have planted the garden with stuff to attract and feed the local bug population, and as soon as I did the rain started. Worked on a new flash diffuser for the MT 24, still raining. Got some new stand offs for the flash heads, still raining.

Looking out in the garden my newly sown grass and wild flower section is under 3 or more inches of water. The wood chip from the borders has floated around covering that and half of the paved area.

The rockery with the bee/butterfly plants now has a moat (maybe that could be a feature?).

The raised border with the pretty flowers is having mixed fortunes, some of the flowers are looking pretty rotted.

Not much of the above is of much concern, but I have barely seen a fly for a week or so.

How is a guy to practice and test the diffuser?

:lol: A little advice from this side of the pond...$hit happens here as well. :lol:


The things you do for yourself die with you, the things you do for others live forever.
A man's worth should be judged, not when he basks in the sun, but how he faces the storm.

Agree April has been a bit of a wash out. Perhaps you had better book a holiday in May, somewhere sun is guaranteed.

Perhaps you can build a pond instead :D
I also had been thinking what object is the best thing to test out diffusers.

The pond idea had occurred to me, and I may well do it.

How is a guy to practice and test the diffuser?

I have requested a selection of different buttons from my (long suffering) wife to test macro lighting in the past.

You can get shiny, dull, round, flat.

The thread holes show how deep the shaddows are.

And as buttons don't crawl or fly off it's a bit more repeatable than real world.

Not much of the above is of much concern, but I have barely seen a fly for a week or so.

Yup....
