A third layer of diffusion on the new flash system - this is a curved piece of 129 Heavy Frost Lighting gel over the top of the packaging foam and polystyrene plate materials.
I just moved the heads back and forth and in one or two added a +1 increase in power and took the images.
In Lightroom afterwards, I just tweaked the shadows, clarity and contrast sliders, but did not alter any exposure levels.
This weevil started off asleep on the piece of stone, but over the few minutes I was taking the photos, it awoke and went for a bit of a wander...
