    Default How to shoot marco using the LX5

    Hi ppl,

    Newbie here on this camera.

    Would like to know and the extra equipments need for a macro product shoot.

    Mainly shoot for watches for online selling.

    Thinking of buying a Light Tent (Studio in a Box), any recommendation?

    Thanks all for your inputs.

    It's macro. Marco's the name of a person.

    A light tent would be gd and also need around 2 flashguns.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    Any brand in particular?

    Flashguns lighting? i saw those that comes in Fluorescent tube, but i guess it will be to hash for the watches as the glass is very reflective

    No it won't. The flashes fired through the box will still create a nice soft lighting effect.

    You are missing the most basic equipment of all.
    That is experience, gained through assisting an established photographer, at least experience of shooting a dozen or more weddings as the 2nd shooter or assistant.
