Close-ups setup - Mini Inflatable Softbox

Close-ups setup - Mini Inflatable Softbox
Canon 450D with 100mm/2.8 Macro with Lens collar attached. Wimberley F-2 "Shape shifter" macro bracket attached to quick release plate on Lens collar. Nikon SB-800 Speedlight mounted on Nikon SC-29 TTL sync cord, attached to Wimberley macro bracket. Inflatable Softbox with piece of Lee 216 White diffusion filter taped to the center of it, mounted on the SB-800 flash unit.

This setup requires a high amount of flash power (1/8th for f/8 ISO100 1/200s) and produces harsh highlights when photographing subjects like large (20mm) beetles. Not recommended.
