    Well,

    Based on what I did this weekend, they have a lot in common. Lets just say I'm anxious for spring macro photography and just don't have the $$$$ to drop on a macro twin flash.

    Check out what I did with two pint-sized Bud Light cans and some duct tape [​IMG]

    NICE. So what kind of paper is at the end of that?

    nice touch to put the images next to it, great for comparison.

    Well, I first tried this foam packing material (the foam sleeves that video cards come packaged), but found that standard paper towel produced better results.

    I've been asked about cycle time for my 430EX so I'm going to measure that. Also, I was told to do the same test outdoors since bounce lighting has an effect.

    Overall I like the results.

    Thanks,
    Roy
