    After reading marks thread about reverse macro and his diy diffuser, I made one of my own and was amazed at the difference.

    He has made my macro life a lot easier with my 50mm macro lens. Especially with these dark, cloudy days...

    Here is one of my first attempts with the diffuser and on board flash.

    What do you guys think??

    This is sweet!!!!
    So all I know about M-a-r-k's DIY-diffusor is that it was made from a milk carton, but I still don't know how it was really made. What di YOU do to arrive at this wonderful result (for apart from the lovely droplets, the yellow of this flower is extra lovely!)

    Very nice flower shot. Whatever you did worked! :thumbup:

    Dahlias are one of my favorite flowers to take pictures of. They are huge and seem to catch the light nicely.

    After making this, I just had to try it out so I took this pic in the rain.

    The diffusor was made from a plastic milk carton and attached to my macro lens with a piece of string, I'll get a pic on this post asap.

    It works brilliantly and saves me a lot of money.

    Thanks again m-a-r-k...

    Here's those pics of my diy diffusor. The string is pulled just tight enough to flex the soft plastic, therefore holding it fairly tight on the lens.

    Sorry I couldn't include the camera body as it's my only one..
