Trying a different way of using an external camera mounted flash gun for macro shots. Just a sheet of A4 paper folded in half and then two slots about 3cms long cut on both the long sides about halfway down and the paper is bent and stuck at these slot points to make a slight curve. The paper is mounted on the flash gun as shown using a length of a sticky tape stuck to itself as a strap which is held round the flash and stuck to the paper on both sides. The flash is then used with the head swung away from the lens at an angle of about 30' to 45'
