Cooperative of Photography (COOPH) has published a video on its YouTube channel that offers viewers five macro photography ideas. The video aims to demonstrate ways to capture striking images without investing in expensive equipment; one idea, for example, includes instructions on transforming an empty chips canister into a flash diffuser.

The video focuses on ordinary items and elements easily found in the home or office. COOPH demonstrates ways to capture unique textures using things like soap bubbles and sponges, as well as color patterns using prisms and macro still life using ordinary tiny objects like a pen spring.
