Macro Photography Flash Question!
9 months ago

Hello everyone,

I am about to order the Nikon 105 f2.8 Micro lens b/c I love macro photography.

I am reading and looking at the Ring flashes and I was considering it, but for the price and with many DIY methods, I want to avoid buying it now.

What are some DIY methods for good lightning? I have my D7000, 105mm f2.8, 1 SB-700, Manfrotto 190XPROB and 498RC2 head, and remote shutter cable.

Isn't the easiest way to just shoot wireless with my SB-700? I also read about buying a large diffuser, but what is the purpose of this? And can the diffuser that came with my SB-700 with sufficient?

Thanks so much!
