Morning everyone,

Im after some advice, I’m look for the best lighting option for macro photography (insects, flowers etc..) for my Olympus & am trying to decide whether I’m better of getting the STF-8 Macro Twin Flash or use a single speadlight with some kind of diffusion?

many thanks,


Hope this doesn't throw too much of a monkey wrench into your plans, but there is another option.  I don't use any kind of flash and never have - strictly natural light.  It does complicate things in other ways though.  If you're interested in seeing what kind of results you can get without flash, feel free to poke around on my site.  Lots of macro flowers to see under the Galleries menu (The Beauty Within, Flora, and Naturally Abstract collections).
