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! :D


Here's the setup:

Speaking personally, I'm less bothered by a dead mouse than by some of the bugs I've seen in macro forums.

What grosses one person out isn't necessarily disturbing to another (a good thing--otherwise there'd be no surgeons). I don't think we should criticize the dead-mammal picture.

Thanks man. It's an unusual subject for me, but I always look to find beauty in everything.

Great photos! I like the ones without the sparkle, but I like the look of the seeds with the added flash. I'll have to try this.

Yeah... I've been hearing that the sparkle came out quite harsh, hard lighted.
Although I kinda like it, I'm starting to feel that I should have bounced off some light instead of trying a direct/diffused lighting.

Maybe keep the same setup, but turn the flash head up facing forward at 45 degrees and have it bounce back off a white card.

For product photography, you definitely want to shoot on a dryer, not a washing machine. Typical rookie error. LOL!!!

We don't have a dryer:p

The bathroom is the only room in the apartment that can be turned completely dark (no windows)

Getting the room dark is not the key here. Setting up your camera is!

I.e. turn your flash off, put the camera in manual mode and adjust your app to say F8-F11 or so. (Experiment to taste) Then adjust your shutter speed until the frame is completely black! I.e. keep turning the speed up until your test frame is black. NOW, turn your flash on, and adjust the flash output until you get the look/feel your going for. Hope that helps?

The kiwi shot is great. I'm totally going to have to try something like that.

Now that I know what that is I want one!

Why are people so freaked out by a dead animal? If you can't handle seeing that you must have had a very sheltered life!

I don't think there's anything wrong at all with photographing it. A rare opportunity.

If that is the case let's call it a "wasted" opportunity as the images posted has absolutely zero photographic merit and could've been done better with a P&S.
Maybe it's because he used Live View to obtain focus :p

Bottom line; it's creepy. People can say it's not, but it is. Could something photographic have been done that would've worked? Sure, but those weren't it.
