    Macro photography lighting setup | Need advice

    Thanks a lot for these valuable informations ! I would definitely go for the dual arm and I would never think about the fact, that it wouldn't be able to hold it still. I will look for different solutions and look at the one you provided. Any idea about the flash cord cable though ? :)

    I toned down the dodge and burning now ( edited the thread ) I can send you the before picture if you want though. I dont want to crop the lights, i like wide pictures and i decreased the brightness of the lights quite a lot so it doesnt distract as much , it adds a different element to the...

    Several macro questions

    As we were talking earlier, Raynox 250 is basicaly another lens = added glass = worse IQ... but 2 photographers told me that i should go for raynox cause it has better quality on higher resolution than the 50mm reversed technique... and then one told me that the 50mm will have better quality :D...

    But extension tubes have no glass in it so it cant really reduce the image quality right ?

    Several macro questions

    But options 1 and 3 result in overall loss of image quality and sharpness :O 2 is unreal as i know myself lol, i am just a student :D. Regarding option 1, I have 100mm f/2.8 canon macro lens but i am not sure if i want to try that. I am leaning towards the extension tubes mostly cause Thomas...

    Several macro questions

    On his video where he reviewed the Venus 60mm f/2.8 lens ( 2:1 magnification ) he also had one picture of the spider ... so i am confused... is 2x enough or he cropped it and there was no detail loss ? Anyway... i am still not quite sure if i can handle it, i will surely practice but i am kinda...
