Another question.

Is there any reason to keep the frosted plastic diffuser in place vs. removal and shooting at a white background lit with a flash? Thanks.

John,
For my own work, I use one with the diffuser removed. I don't want a piece of dust to show up in a lot of images.

It does mean that you need to make sure the light is well-diffused.  I've found the need to triple-diffuse my strobes - A softbox with a baffle, and then a piece of milk plexiglass between the softbox and the film stage a foot or so back).

In case anyone is interested, here is a view of the rig I am playing with now.  Very similar to Peter's using a Nikon PS-5 stage and major RRS parts, but using a 100mm macro (on full frame). I took advantage of a few RRS parts I had in the drawer.

also here are photos of the PS-5 as stock and disassembled





and undergoing modification to remove flange

John,
thanks for posting. I cut the flange off the PS5 with a dremmel tool and a cutting wheel.  Probably a little less neat than a drill press, but ultimately does the same thing.
