More light diffusion

A toy dinosaur was photographed using a Canon MT-26EX-RT Macro Twin Lite mounted on a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS lens (set for manual focus), Kenko 20mm macro automatic extension tube, and Canon EOS 5D Mark II DSLR camera (set for manual exposure). Snap-on plastic light diffusers were mounted on both flash heads.

The first photo shows a wider view of the small plastic toy.

The next photo shows a closer view of the same toy. Specular highlights are more noticeable when the flash heads are closer to the subject.

More light diffusion was added by mounting four layers of translucent white plastic foam on the right flash head (facing forward). Notice the specular highlights are less glaring on the right side of the last photo than on the left.
