Nikon D60, 25mm extension tube from Tamron 2xtele with elements removed, 20mm and 36mm Vivitar AT-3 auto extension tubes, Nikkor-H 85mm f/1.8, DIY adjustable flash bracket, Sunpak 433D flash (manual), DIY diffuser from take-out container and funfoam, flash has stofen inside, Bogen ball-head knockoff (nice quality though), shortened leg parts from an old aluminum artist display easle (the end pulls out and twist-locks, which I can press against my shoulder as a steady- also used for long lenses and wildlife photography).
This lens/extension combo allows about 1:1, I use the 25mm tube and a 50mm f/1.8 for 1:2 or the 85mm lens with the 20+25mm extension tubes.
I have a couple cheap/small ballheads in the mail that will hopefully allow me to do something similar to Adrianr's setup above. My biggest issue currently is this bracket is not as adjustable as I'd like and I more often than not wish the light was at 12 o'clock or about 10 o'clock compared to about 2 o'clock where it is now. Also, I would like to improve the diffusion a little more, this feels a little "hot" and robbing of flash output.
