Hell, I didn't even go that far. I was literally laying on the ground with the umbrella laying to the side of the photos. But that's a good idea, thank you. I never would have thought about it.

Pricey (USD $300), yet compact option:

Yeah, I saw that a while back... The price tag is what made me start researching DIY rigs.

Got one of these from China, waiting for it to be shipped...and no it didn't cost me nowhere near $300. Just hoping it'll work since they said it's for the speedlite 430EX and i forgot that i have the 420 EX instead...hopefully the heads are the same size...otherwise i'll feel silly!


EDIT: Got it today, didn't get a chance to test it too much but i did put it on the flash and it seems the flash head is a tad small, so i guess the 420 is smaller than the 430. It still works if i tighten it, but i'll have to purchase a 430EXII in the near future for full effect probably.

I have a Canon MT-24 flash. It's useful for macro's and it can be used to create some interesting effects since the flash is right next to your lens.

It's very specialized so I don't use it that often. Especially since I sold my 100mm macro (I still have a 50mm).
