A pair of lighting examples
Lens: 50mm w/extension tubes Camera: K-x Photo Location: Pa 

I'm looking to get some constructive critism in regards to the lighting on these two(2) pics.
Both were captured using a DIY tube to utilize the on-board flash from the K-x.
(flash intensity was turned down to -2.0, and diffused through 1/8" white foam and a white T-shirt)

1)


2)

It looks like your DOF is off. What f stop did you use?

I'm somewhat confused what DOF has to do with lighting?

I'm not sure now what I was thinking when I asked about your fstop settings. I'll think on it and let you know.

The light is adequately diffused but it is definitely on the cold side. Need to dial down the blue channel some.
