Wow, thanks for this information, Sage. I have a little point and shot Kodak, but this might work I do believe.

I'm just sharing a basic idea which earlier shared by my Flickr-friend, Photophool. He invents alot of macro stuff like this. He's actually featuring some new work on his page now. George is a wonderful guy who loves photography and inventing. He'd be pleased to hear you like this idea, and that you would pass it on.

Sage, can you talk him into coming over to "play" with us? That would be sooooooo cool.

Today super macro.
Tomorrow a new ringflash.

Thank you Sage. You laid it out perfectly for me. I'll pick up the right kind of bowl this week. Let's see what I can do combining my knowledge. I'm totally excited about this.

This ringflash qualifies as my top tip for 2009.

Anyone interested in macro-photography tips, you must see Photophool's recent discovery. The macro lens he uses is a Raynox 250, which I have, and it snaps onto the camera.
