Macro Photography Lighting Tutorial

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW about LIGHT in macro photography! It’s a complete tutorial — natural light, ring lights, flash, dual flash, and diffusers.

I’ve been a macro photographer for 7 or 8 years now, and lighting is still what I think about the most. Good lighting will make or break any photo, but especially a macro photo, since it’s so easy to capture harsh light with the wrong setup (or just not enough light in the first place).

If you have any questions or comments, let me know below and I’ll be sure to answer!
