Hi, I have a Nikon F100, SB-28, flash braket and SC-17. Wich is the best way to arrange this items for insect photography? I usually have under/over exposure problems when using the flash mounted in the bracket at 1:1, 1:2 ratios with the 105mm AF D micro lens. I use the flash in TTL (no automatic balanced fill-flash) with no compensation and the camera set in manual mode (1/250, F/22, matrix metering, usually handheld and manual focus). I also set the flash to 24mm zoom or use the wide flash adapter. The braket leaves the flash at camera level and about 7 inches from the lens. I don't use a tripod for this kind of photography because insects move a lot!! I only use it to reduce dark backgrounds using slow speeds during daylight when shooting inmobile subjects. Most of the time I shoot during night so I attached a small flashlight at the bottom of the flash bracket for correct focusing.
Someone knows wich could be the problem?

Thanks.

Pablo Rodriguez.
