A very nice set, I like the Tony robberfly the best.
I hate to say it, but as much as I like the photos I have equal intererst in the diffuser the lighting looks really good and no bad shinny bits on the subjects

Lovely stuff, Hayath. Really nice, and i too like the robberfly!

Can I ask you perhaps to show what achromats you're using on each shot? I'm thinking the close-up might be with stacked achromats perhaps? :D

Thanks much :)
The same two-tiered diffuser, changed lighting angles, muddled around with lamination sheets and tracing paper sheets

I thought your work with the old diffuser was good enough :thumbsup:, this looks even better! Well done (again)..
Too kind of you to say that, thanks!
This journey towards the "right light" never ends :D

The first 4 images were shot on a bare Olympus 60mm macro
The last one had the Raynox DCR-250 snapped onto the front. I often step down to f13-f16 when I do that

Thanks!
