vivitar 105/2.5

just made a new support for me macro rig. it's and inch taller and lets the lenshood support some of the weight.


as you can see, it's pretty formidable but works like a charm.




it only works from 1:1 - 1:1.3-4 .. any size lower than that and the flash is firing into the lens.. i also like it because it casts a shadow below the subject

Excellent job!
Will it solve the problem if you extend the bracket that hold the flash - make it a bit higher and also bend it towards the front?
