    Hi.

    Here is my first real macro shoot I took today (no post processing). Quick question for macro experts - how to get rid of the flash reflection's? Will the diffuser help?
    What is that? Cicada?

    1/200
    F13
    Macro flash
    Manual focus

    Many thanks to TCimages for answering all my macro questions:)

    I do believe it's a Dogday Harvestfly which is in the Cicada Family.

    A diffuser will help also use less power in the flash by using a smaller f stop. I use the little pop -up flash on my camera and even then sometimes rap it in tissue paper.

    Oh, and nice shot by the way. :thumbup:
