    Default A question for Macro masters..

    hey there..

    i have a question regading macro. is Flash a must? a bounce card too? i mean if the subject is hiding in a corner, most definitely. but what if the subject is exposed to the light, isit still a must?

    if so, what flashes do u use? or what flashes do u recommend?

    TIA!

    Hi,
    i'm not the macro master here, but i believe flash is a must for fill in, even when the subject is exposed to light. Defused the flash, omnibounce etc etc.....yep! problem is the subject is very near to the flash, to harsh.....so what i normally do is - the flash output ( - fec in canon system) Master macro please correct me. Thanks

    Just my 2 cents

    how to bounce in marco(field)?? the area tt ur working with is so small so ur flash must be placed in the correct positions(as in not camera mounted and triggered remotely) which is very hard if u did not stage ur shot(like when in the field). marco ring flash does wat its supposed to do. u can use ur speedlite to some extent by handholding it to properly illuminate the subject and use ur built-in flash/wireless cmd to trigger it

    if you think the built in camera flash is too strong then just use a piece of paper or cloth to diffuse the light. there have been some occasions that my on camera flash was useful for taking some macro-shots...
