Well, the next battle will be the "Battle of the Close-up Photography Tips," with my friend Juan Pons.
Juan and I enjoy doing the Digital Photo Experience Podcast. But heck, first and foremost, we are photographers. So, our week-long "battle" will be a blast.
Here's a quick tip for starters: If you are serious about close-up photography, get a ringlight. A ringlight can produce shadowless lighting and ratio lighting (because you can adjust the flash output of the flash tubes). It lets you shoot hand-held close-up photos – like my photo of this red-eye tree frog. A ringlight also lets you shoot at small apertures for good depth-of-field.
Here's a link for more info on the ringlight I use:
Canon MR-14EX Macro Ring Lite for Canon Digital SLR Cameras
Stay tuned for details.
Hey, if you like close-up photography, and butterflies, check out the iPad app that Juan and I developed: Butterfly Wonders.
