Low cost macro shooting delivering outstanding quality is easier than you think!
Art Vaughan has developed a method for macro photography utilizing the pop-up flash on most camera bodies to provide all the light needed to make stunning close up images.
In this program, photographer Art Vaughan describes a process for shooting macro photographs using lighting provided by the standard ‘pop-up’ flash found on many cameras. Using a simple home-made support bracket and a variety of close-up lenses, extension tubes, or stacked add-on lenses, anyone can produce amazing macro images having true ‘studio’ quality lighting, for a fraction of the cost of a system utilizing multiple flashes, ring lights, or expensive factory made support brackets. The set-up described provides maximum portability for hunting down and following small insects and spiders who aren’t going to sit still for photographers using cumbersome tripods. The program includes details of building your own low cost macro lighting rig. Anyone wishing to explore the world of macro photography and wanting to get top notch and very satisfying results should consider attending.
