Re: Macro Lighting Advice

You are most kind.  The Gagea picture I took at several shutter speeds and the one I've posted was a good balance of flash and daylight leaving the background well lit.  Balancing flash and daylight was talked about a lot in the olden days, before auto flash exposure, basically the aperture (and flash TTL!) controls the flash exposure and the shutter speed controls the ambient.  OIS helped as the balance was at 1/30th.  Happily with digital you can just experiment unlike in film days!
