    Re: Best lighting option for macro?

    When I saw the photo of the R1C1, my thoughts were that it made sense for light to come from the side instead of straight on and oh, my Lord that is expensive!

    Thanks Scott, I was just about to start looking for your threads. Saved me the trouble

    Here is my version of the Scott Murray diffuser......

    This is a very low cost way of getting some acceptable lighting on the insects. I found my foam in the dumpster at work, enough to make about 5 of these.

    I mostly use mine on my 55mm macro lens, but also have one for my 105mm as well.

    Not too bad for something I got for free, and took 5 minutes to make....

    Is the height of that foam equal to the height of the open flash?

    It probably sits a little bit higher than the flash.
