Macro with flash or without?
Feb 23, 2013

I've been shooting macro shots for years using only natural light, but in the last year, I've been experimenting more with flash. Still though, I find myself wondering to what extent flash makes a difference. Here are two shots taken with the Oly 60mm 2.8 macro, one taken without flash, and one taken with. Both converted in ACR. Can you see a huge difference? Can you tell which is which?
