    Default New to me macro flash

    Just got a second hand, Canon Macro Ring flash - MR 14EX and my first impressions a very good.

    The one thing that I hadn't really anticipated was the many various ways to use it -)

    I can see that it might well be used for general use as well as maco as it links to other flashes. Can anyone help out on this please? and any other hints and tips to get me up and running?

    I tend to set one side brighter than the other to replicate the sun and slight modelling. Remember to rotate it on your lens when in portrait mode!
    I would not use it for portraits, Judges at our Camera Club always comment on catch lights in the eyes, and do not like round catch lights, it looks unnatural.
