I do not want to plug a certain "reluctant millionaire", he's plenty good enough at self-promotion, but I find his collapsible light sphere very effective, convenient and portable... and not just for macro photography.

A few weeks ago, together with another friend we shot a large wedding in Melbourne for mutual friends. I had planned to use 4 x D910's on light stands with PW's for optimum lighting across the room. When we saw the size of the ballroom, we quickly realised we needed at least 8 and we didn't bring that many with us. So, we both had these lightspheres and the results we achieved with them on our D910's directly mounted on a D800 (his) / D600 (mine) using 24-70 F2.8 lenses were absolutely outstanding!

Another friend who's doing a lot of environmental portraiture also swears by the same manufacturer's "snoot"...

Just bought one! It will come in handy.

Hope it is good for you too... I find it works best most of the time with the flash head and diffuser dome pointing up.
