Mine diffuser for canon macro flash MT-24EX represent combinacion of diffuser's made by @Dalantech, @SteB1 and @OrionMystery.
I used JJC-FC-26U Flash Diffuser + Gary Fong Puffer (hot glued them together), vellum paper - bubble wrap "sandwich" and plastic holder (cut from the 0,5l Coca Cola bottle).

I was going to ask why do you need so many diffusers but after seeing the pictures I realized you know what you are doing. BTW, I really like this pic. Made me smile, and not only in appreciation.

Here's my setup.
Canon 50D with Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro. I usually have a set of Kenko tubes on there.

Chrisa...
I adore #2. I have begun playing with macro. just basically the 50mm reversed in natural light, but would like to try getting some diffused flash on it. Could you tell me a little bit about your home made diffuser on your speedlight?
Thanks

lol unreal! Now if I can bear to eat that junk. Thank you so much for sharing. Seems to work great from the lighting in your images.

My son also loves these creatures. Macro lens (60/2.8) but of course, not macro distance. Just close up.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Here's my starter macro rig. Nothing too fancy, just a bunch of stuff from my gear pile pieced up together

Guys, your creativity is amazing, no less. But wouldn't something like this be as efficient, especially for a DIY-challenged person like me?



Happy shooting,

Thanks Kenny.

I went and grabbed a couple shots to contribute to the thread also.
Here's my D200 with a stack of ProOptic tubes behind the Sigma 105mm. The flash is a SB-400 with some "fun foam" and a recycled Altoids tin for a diffuser. I cut the front and back out so I can open the front of the tin and change the diffuser material in a couple seconds. Functionally it's good but I still need to find a diffuser material I'm happy with, for now is a coffee filter

Not that there isn't a thousand choices, here is another one for you. I used to have a large sheet of whithe 'RipStop' material I bought off a roll (bolt?) from a discount fabric store in L.A. I would make a tent over my subject, like a softbox in bright sun. You could get a "swatch" of it, likely for free and try it out. It is really durable and makes some nice light.

You could also look at an old army surplus store. See if you could find some real parachute material. You could either rig a tent, or just put a piece over your flash rig. That may make for some nice light as well. We used a section of parachute and made a smoker tent during a land survival exercise in the Navy. Smoked fish, smoked frog and smoked snake is pretty good after a few days of eating palmetto shoots!
