Sorry, more flies
Lens: Panagor macro 55mm F/3 with 3 extension rings Camera: K-7 Photo Location: my garden ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/180s Aperture: F16

After trying Rense's DIY macro flash diffuser (see https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/post-your-photos/100334-macro-first-serio...nse-shots.html), I made a diffuser myself yesterday.

Today I tested my diffuser in the garden using my Panagor macro 55mm F/3 with 3 extension rings!

Iris, these are great results, but I think the DOF on the first one is very, very thin! The second one is just great! And the third one has very interesting background colours. Well done!

Yes, you did very well on number 2. A lot of details in this shot. Thanks for sharing.

Looks like you're giving Rense a run for the money!
I like #2 the best - maybe a little more light though?
Stonger flash setting, or brighten up the inside of the diffuser with foil or something? Just guessing...

Thanks Rense..
I agree that the DOF of the first one is very thin, but somehow I like that

I don't think the diffuser will work without the foil inside
It was a very grey day and probably the darkest place in my garden, but that's where these tiny flies like to be. I will look at the light! Thanks for looking and commenting!
