Since macro is very challenging and highly technical, it's not possible to learn everything in one day. But fret not, you can join my workshop again, anytime, by just recommending your friend to join my workshop. If your friend joins, you can tag along again.
I have a DIY Snoot Diffuser (for 100mm/90mm range. It will fit the SB900 too) and 580EX II to loan to you if are using Canon camera. Only one though so only for the first one who asks for it :)
Things to bring:
- drinking water
- sun hat
- insect repellent. I normally just wear long sleeves shirt and long pants though, crocs shoes and socks. I tuck in my pants so the ants or leeches can't get in. Not all types of socks will work to keep the leeches out. However, no leeches at this location.
- tripod (optional) I will bring mine to demo to you.
- your camera, macro lens and/or dcr250 and/or extension tubes, camera manual (just in case we need to check out some functions)
Diffuser for your reference:
Quick and easy one
But don't worry as I will loan you my snoot diffuser and the 580EX II (only for the first one to sign up).
