Long-time lurker, first-time poster. Very new at macro shooting. Got my first dedicated lens 2 days ago...Sigma 150 f2.8 mounted on Canon 40D. My setup isn't the greatest. Lots of great ideas in this forum, so I'll get something to work.

Use the URL in the text box titled "2. Grab the photo's URL:" at the bottom of the flickr page for the size image you want to post.

Recently added the 100mm macro to my lens line up, and modified couple of lighting gears I use for portraits.

For indoors/back yard type of situation, I like to use off camera flash to have more control over the lighting angles. Here I have a ST-E2 triggers a 430EX in a beauty dish diffuser.

I add a mini ball head to a regular camera flipping flash bracket, so I can point the flash down directly over the lens, or swing it each side and lighting from 45 degree angle. In these setup shots, off shoe cord to the 580EX in another bowl diffuser. With the 580EX in master mode, I can control the off camera 430 too.

I don't know how practical is to use that flash bracket out in the field, as I just started experimenting macros.

Hey, it looks impressive! I like your idea of the brackets and stuff for staged shots though. You have a lot of control over the lighting of your shots that way, and way more elegantly than my attempts.

Hey Crypto how is this set-up working for you? I finally was able to get my macro lens and I like the simplicity of your rig.

Thanks

I know what it is! And I know where you got it (generally speaking). :cool:

Anybody else recognize it?

Does that delta bracket hold the weight good. I have seen many people complain about it. I some how see the flexibility of this bracket a plus compared to others.
I plan to use it with 30D and 430Ex. Please let me know your opinion about this bracket. I am going back and forth based on the mixed reviews.

Good for you. Which one did you get?

You said 580 is too heavy for Delta. Will it hold 430ex?
