:eager: Do it, do it, dooooo iiiiiiittttt!
Any questions? Go ahead and ask!


Might just clear up a few things right here. :giggle: I'm using a Nikon D60 + kit lens (Nikkor 18-55mm).
For my macro shots I use macro filters which are muuuuch cheaper than macro lenses of course (you see I'm all about saving money lol).

Find a cropped and slightly edited version of the example picture here:

How does this work, exactly? I mean, wouldn't using a reflector be just as good?

You have macro lens or normal?

Hey, sorry for the very late reply. I don't have a macro lens, all I have is macro filters (much cheaper, but just as good) :)

I believe a soft box has just about the same effect, yes :nod:
