Macro ring flash for OMD & 60mm lens
5 months ago
I recently bought the 60mm 2.8 macro lens primarily as a sharp short telephoto and portrait lens but with the idea that I would also be encouraged to begin to learn the best way to take macro shots. I promised myself I'd try not to take the standard shots of 'flies eyes' or flowers but have found myself already attempting the latter!
I began to read around the subject yesterday and noticed a thread on this forum regarding the usefulness of ring flashes and a couple of possible options were discussed which seemed quite expensive.
I'm wondering whether it might work with my camera lens combo.. how it attaches to the lens etc.. whether having the 60mm's lens hood on the camera makes a difference etc?
Any advice greatly appreciated. I hardly ever use flash for anything so keep it simple please!
