Nothing special, but have re-diffused my flash, using a circular plastic pot lined with foil and a few layers of foam stuff, 1/32 flash power (Yongnuo YN560-III) and am using a cheap LED ring light on the end of the lens to aid focussing, set on "light" rather than flash obviously, kinda like the one built in to the MT-24EX. (It's not very powerful and I have it turned right down so doesn't affect the pics exposure), temp bracket made of cheap ass metal strip with holes in it, wanted to try to get it as good as I want it before making a permanent one.
(I'll add a pic to the "post your set-up" thread)
Here's a couple of quick shots with it

I have about 8 layers of thin foam, started with 2 layers and built up from there, rotating each through 45 degrees to try and diffuse better, adding more doesn't seem to help but like I say I'm using 1/32 power @ f8 ISO 200 1/200ss.
I think this light is pretty good but still get reflections on shiny bugs. Anyone got any tips for reducing that ? Is it even possible ?
