This is one of my early shots using my new Canon 100mm Macro lens. One of the challenges I found in macro photography is light! as you come too close to your primary subject, the light drops dramatically, so I absolutely need a bright light source. In this shot, I have used Canon 430ex speedlight mounted on my camera, and used A4 paper sticked and folder in front of the flash to allow the light to spread.

If you feel there is something I missed, I'll be greatful to know it... ;)

Technical Specs:
ISO Speed: 400
Filters: None
Flash; 430ex 2
