So... here we go.
Last night I was into having some fun with fruit.
Ok, not that kind of fun, you pervs!...
Anyway, I set up my 50D with the 24-105L and a 20mm extension tube (Kenko, the mid-sized one).
I have mounted the 580EX II on the body (7º down and with diffuser, zoom at 105mm) and I have set up the 430EX II in slave mode (bare, with the 14mm diffuser panel), under an upside-down bowl and a paper napkin.
Manual flash, outputs varied between 1/32 and 1/128. 430EX II on group B. Sometimes I put some sparkle by switching on the camera-mounted 580EX II.
All the times f/7.1 (I find the sharpest on the 24-105L) and 1/250 (to isolate ambient lighting). ISO values between 100 and 400. All files JPEG.
And starring, for the first time ever on the Internet, my gym bag as a counterweight!
