hi john! glad to see you back uploading a couple of images recently.

just wondering whether you're still using your same diffusers? (puffers, stofens, lumiquest materieal etc..)

i still don't seem to get quite as soft light as you do using my copies of these diffusers. though i always wonder whether that's more down to my 40D's metering...mind you that shouldn't affect the quality of light really.

also do you still have an 81A warming filter on your MP-E 65?

Same diffuser, and these days I don't cut the front out of the Sto-Fens.

The light meter in the 40D use to drive me insane...

Lately I haven't been shooting with anything on the lens, and no CTO gels:

Tech specs: Canon 1D MKIII (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MPE-65mm macro lens (@ ~5x) + a Canon MT-24EX macro twin flash.
