    hey it would be so cool if you could try a few of these really great shots of him molting.
    Do take requests?
    What did you want me to take a pic of? Yeah, with macro you need to take a bunch of shots, then select the best one. Rarely will the first shot be the keeper.

    My setup is simple enough. Got a flash bracket attached to the tripod mount of my camera. Have the external flash attached to a sync cord, which is also attached to a ball jointed thingy to allow me to position the flash at the angle I need. Also have a flash diffuser attached to soften the shadows.

    Great pictures Larry!

    What model flash do you use? I'm thinking about getting one for my camera eventually. Just curious.

    Thanks,
    Crystal
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    For macros I use the Canon 430EX, for other shots I may use the Canon or the awesome Vivitar 285HV. With the Vivitar, I use it off camera triggered remotely, a steal at $85.
