LIGHT­ING SETUP TIPS

Photo Plus - - Canon Skills -

We’ve used a pair of con­tin­u­ous lights for our fin­ished shot, but you could use any num­ber of light sources. Nat­u­ral light will work but, at this time of year with the win­ter gloom, you’ll need to shoot around mid­day when the light is bright­est. You could also use a ded­i­cated macro ring flash, though be­cause it’s a very di­rec­tional light you will prob­a­bly end up with some un­wanted shad­ows. An ideal light­ing setup would be the light­box that we built last month (is­sue 147), which can be lit with speed­lights (as we’ve done above), ta­ble lamps or even phone lights.
