Good for macro work?

Post by Carl_Constantine »

our Digital Photography group email list had this show up today: ... torypage=2

Quite ingenious. It works for portrait work, but would it work for Macro?

Dang if that isn't the oddest thing I have ever seen on any ones head, even a cute girls. :wink: But you know that could have great potential in macro shooting. It would be a bit rough here in the underbrush of the mountains though but everywhere else, looks like it would work fine. Bet you would meet a lot of interesting people wearing that thing on your head. 8)

Your head made cause a shadow because of short working distances. The umbrella could get caught is a bunch of things and I would hate to work with it on a windy day, but I can see advantages in the rain. Naturally, it would not turn heads in NYC, but others may be alarmed - don't wear it at airports.
