Here is an example of macro photographs using the equipment described in the previous article. A female European earwig, found in a bunch of Chinese broccoli called gai lan. (Finding live insects in your vegetables is always a good sign: you know there hasn’t been a recent application of pesticide!) Still some glare on the abdomen, but the 270EX II flash is strong enough that I could increase the diffusion more.
