Great job, guys!
I wonder how to setup 5 flashes to take photo of mobile subject. Any tips?
Must be a lot of hard work & patience. Looking at the outcome, it is still worth every efforts put in.
there is not a right/wrong answer whether natural light or flash should be used in macro. it also depends if you are creating a photograph (in the aesthetic sense) or you might be doing documentation of the subject. also the subject may be in shade or structured such that natural light is inadequate (eg tubular shaped flowers).
in many cases the subject may be in a cluttered environment and you actually want to use flash to only highlight the subject and dimmed out the background.
so it is important for the learner to understand and reason for himself when and why to use natural light, flash or a combination.
