Now I'm not normally a Macro photographer but seeing as I have access to a Canon 100mm f/2.8 L Macro for portraits I thought I would have a go. I ended up making a very basic light tube to extend and apply direct light just over the lens.

Nothing spectacular but everyone starts somewhere. I haven't even looked at Macro techniques yet.

Very nice, the shallow depth of field works well in this image.

Well, looks like you're pretty good at it. Good framing and nice background positioning.
