ok Paul, followed your guide roughly and today i took my first 2 shots with the home made diffusor. Instead of 1x8mm layer of foam i placed 2 x 3mm, as I could not find an 8mm one . The strawberry still looks too hot to my liking, but better than without diffusion. Could it be because it is highly reflective? The glue tube looks better. What do you think? almost no modifications on the images.
And I need to clean my sensor
