My gear:

Camera: Canon EOS 50D

EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM
EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro
EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5
Extension Tube EF 25 II
Extender EF 2x II

Love macro photography – I never use a flash – I use 2 mirrors and a lid off of takeout food – to light my subjects – with sunlight – the images ‘The Glorious Glass Sphere’ and ’Granny’s Thimble’ are lit this way

Thanks for all the views, comments, faves and features – most of all the sales – THANK YOU :D

[ now if only I can sell more I can get the 5D mk ii :D :D ]
