Glad to know there's a reason even if I don't fully understand it

Itís down to magnification. At these high magnifications things happen in the lens which effectively mean the aperture is smaller than marked. So you need a lot more light than at lower ratios.

I was thinking the 4ft brolly for a portrait vs my pringles tube would be similar size/subject, but thinking about it, I doubt I was using the full surface of it. It just seems to take loads of power for macro.

Very nice stuff Ken


Duggs - all I can think of is relative surface area of the lights to the subject, something you pointed out to me further down and what led to the lumping great purple gaffa monstrosity on my camera

This is a doll house toy in front of quite a small waterfall, no photoshop just straight from the camera

You can just add width=500 before the final > and it'll fit the page
I find it easier to do a linked image from imgbb but the quality is pretty poor

Cool shot

@keebs, light looking great now .

I want to get some black card to round off the corners on my box, I just find the square speculars unnatural.

I'm struggling to get my head round one thing with my macro lighting, done some portraits of my daughter and some other shots. using 2 speedlights, one bounced off a big brolly and one in a 2ft octobox type thing, both set very close to keep the background black, both at minimum power(1/128), and I had to stop down to f8 at base iso to avoid clipping highlights.
So why am I needing 1/8th at least to get f8 for a macro shot

I have never been able to load images here before, actually I never had the urge to but recently I have seen some good photography on here so thought I would give it a go.

If this works its a Bald Eagle I saw on my travels last year, if it doesn't work its just a load of gibberish.
So here goes.





It was originally in a field with trees around it but I thought there was too much clutter so edited out everything but the head.

What size is best for on here?

Great shot and I do like a homemade speedlight diffuser, plus jumping spiders do look good on a photo.

Mk4 Snoot - best yet - lovely wide dispersion.
Crinkled foil lined and double layer of Polystyrene foam sheet on the front.






Downy Jumper - on the bathroom window sill, narrowly escaped the hoover!

I've seen those mushroom images before, they do look great, I might have a go with light painting flowers this week

I don't really do photo forums, there's a few sites I visit for inspiration but photographers seem a pretty argumentative bunch

I have been trying a few things this week on a sort of dramatic, emotive level, a kind of cathartic release, but I can't quite get them right and they're probably a bit 'dark' to share on here.
I might check out that forum for some constructive criticism if I can get them closer to the original vision

A couple of good people to watch on YouTube
Stewart Wood for macro
Jordi Koalitic has some fantastic creative ideas
And take a look at some mushroom light photography, amazing stuff.

Also not sure if you are a member but Talk photography is a fantastic forum, lots of stuff their to discuss.
