Have tried different options of diffusers for taking small insects macro….all of them DIY stuffs…but more or less effective. But my problem lies with the huge weight of the non ETTL/manual flashgun itself ( a four battery with GN 60)..…..(even damaged a DIY rig due to it’s weight) .
Is it possible to use a small flash like the Canon 90EX, mounted in front of the lens somehow ( at present don’t know how……) at an approximate angle of 45 degrees…??
The dedicated twin flash system is out of my budget and do not like to use any of the ring flashes……due to the weird ring reflections and more importantly since they cannot be used with the ET-67 hood on my Canon 100f2.8 lens……I fancy taking macro shots with the hood on.
Till now I have adjusted the flash power manually and taken most the shots on manual mode,with MF.
Also looking for some even smaller flash options…. a set of 2 could be used on a rig.
Have gone through some good-looking options like these
available online…but unfortunately they are not available here in India.
