Chris Marquardt

Chris wants to talk about shooting Macro today and there are some great little lights you can get that can be used to light things up close without overwhelming the image. Little tiny LED lights that are dimmable are great for that. You can find USB powered ones on Amazon. The LED light on your iPhone can work as well since it's dimmable now. There's also gooseneck USB extensions that you can move and control exactly where you want the light to shine. Chris also says that you can get one with an opaque dome on it. There are dozens of great lighting options out there if you do some searching on Amazon. You can even get a ring light for your smartphone that is great for selfie shots. LEDs are interesting and cheap. Ideal for tabletop photography and selfies.
