They're certainly not bad, but I know I've seen better ones from you roy

Can't wait for spring to kick in to see you in action with your macros again

Get your practice in. As the weather warms up, the bugs and flowers are going to get going. Looks like a good warm up series. Look forward to more.

As they say ' practice makes perfect ' so you are nearly there,
What does your macro kit contain ?

this is the basic setup rodney. i either use the sigma 500 or the pentax 400ftz. i'm thinking i need another bracket so i can place the flash in a different position. the lens is a vivitar 105mm f2.5. i think i started a wave of owhership of the lens here.


some times i'll handhold the flash with the cam on a monopod.
