Reverse Mount Macro
Better lighting products for macro photography?

I've been increasingly moving into macro photography and I'm not happy with my lighting. I'm looking for the best "budget" solution out there. All Nikon equipment (but the lighting product need not be): I have a camera Digital Slr with a macro lens 105 mm and 52 mm filter size. I also have a 300 mm zoom with a 62mm filter diameter and a couple of close up diopters. Also I have the SB-600 Speedlight. You can also reverse mount my 50mm lens on one of the lenses above, how to play. For macro photography of nature (eg flowers, insects, leaves) … any suggestions on what "budget" way forward that can offer greater flexibility with the different approaches outlined above? Thanks!

Your best bet is a ring of light that is mounted on the outside of your lens. You can check the most popular photo sites like B & H or Adorama and do a search in the light "ring" of those who fit your Nikon. Ring lights have the advantage of putting the light directly on the subject, as it mounted the front of the lens macro. In this way you can escape shadows or dead spots that one is inside or outside of a camera flash would. It is a great, if expensive gadget, not having to macro photography. If you're more adventerous (and possibly more restricted cash from a new ring of light can cost $ 300 + +) you should check this link an interesting article on how to Make Your Own ring of light around $ 20 in parts can be purchased at Radio Shack. It requires some basic knowledge electronics (solder, etc.) but is not terribly difficult. Good luck
