Now with the new macro rig.

Ok, I have now got my full macro rig for my camera.  I bought a Kirk Macro bracket with the addition of a Giotto Ball head.  These two pieces of kit combined with my Speedlite 430EX II & TTL Off shoe cord work a treat. 
The photo is of a viola, I was suprised myself of the detail I have captured, and I never knew that they looked like that inside.

Thanks for looking.

Not really inspired to go outside today, as it is raining.  Waiting for spring to turn up, and at least I will be able to do some flower shots.

In the meantime, I have been playing around with the Speedlite, and doing some still life.

Well I have been playing around with my 430EX II flash gun today.  Used it on an off shoe cord (purchased from Ebay), bounced the light on a gold reflector to give a bit more warmth to the shot.

I am waiting for some remote triggers to arrive from Ebay, so I will be trying out lots of other shot with my strobes.

Hope you like the shot.
