Dear Sharon . The standard setting should your camera have it is TTL . This option will control the lighting that you need it for your subject . Hopefully you know how to find the flash settings in your camera , Any way lolkk if your flash have reset , press this bottom and then set the camera on TTL flash mode . Please let me know if that work with you . Happy new shoot .

Yep - lots of research and practice is needed for macro, as well as a large diffuser the ability to stack exposures is necessary because of the sometimes shallow depth of field at the optimum apertures for the lens:

This one one below was 5 exposures to achieve different selective focus on certain points:

Thanks Gary... Boy I have a lot of reading to do...don't know how to operate a light meter either!.....Hey... I don't get out of the closet much!  ;-)  I think when I get back to Canada for the summer I will see if I can find someone to teach me !...I read a lot, but it just doesn't sink in... I need hands on to learn.  sigh...

Sharon i always use a light meter in these situations to get the exposure spot on.

Thanks Hazim!  I have a Cokin flash.  I don't have the adaptor to fit my lens.  Not sure what I am looking for to connect it!  (Very new to flash photography).  Also when I hold it in place I don't know what settings to use... sigh...  I need some lessons on using a flash.  The fellow that gave it to me (which I very much appreciated) didn't have much knowledge of it either as he never used it!  (My is good).  So when I played, it was very much trial and error and holding the flash way away from the feathers as they were white.  It was too dark in the house to not use a flash, but a real guessing game as to where to place the flash.  Any help is GREATLY appreciated! :-)
