    well....Here is the idea here, grab your back up, P-shooter, box or whatever other camera you have and take a picture of a shooting setup you used to take a picture.

    Oops. Cool new theme :D
    I have only once photographed my set-up (when I did the droplet pics), so I might add that one to this new theme.
    I get a crick in the neck from viewing the first three here, though... ouch! (Old neck of mine!).

    Yeah it is composed pretty badly, I was standing on a chair....and it is the only one that from the set with the 135mm set that the AF found something colse the the right subject.

    I was going to rotate that and the second one but PB won't load now that I got them uploaded

    Not to intrude on an already great theme, but maybe we could add the "finished" product shot after seeing the setup to give everyone an idea as to the outcome. I know that's what I'm wondering as I look at these.

    Mine can be seen here , here , and here - though none of these actually sport the background I was testing when I took the photo of the set-up.

    This is my mark one macro stacking setup, the lens has changed and now there are bellows instead of extention tubes, but it is still essentially pretty similar :).

    Oops and finished product here...

    Hey Deadeye, thanks a lot. The lens sheild is just basically a hood, but made to fit through a hole cut in a ping pong ball that works as a diffuser, giving (sometimes ;)) a really nice all round lighting effect.The lens hood is a must, and make it as tight to the lens as you can get, anything comming in from the side really makes a nasty glare because you have to keep the apperture as wide as possible, i know it is counter intuative, but at that magnification you get bad diffraction problems when you start getting hight f stops.
