I’m hoping to get my photography mojo back, buy having a wander around some local woodland with my Canon 750D, and my Sigma 105 f/2.8 Macro, along with tripod.
Now my subject will be woodland fungi / lichen, rather than use flash, I’d be hoping to use continual lighting.
I know that you can get specialist continual lighting setups for macro photography, however I’m hoping to try this on a budget.
My cunning plan, is to get a couple of USB Flexible lights (which you normally plug into a laptop USB socket to illuminate the keyboard), and then run these from a USB powerbank, a bit like a poor man’s Adaptalux.
Of course one issue will be getting USB flexi lights with first of all decent brightness, and secondly a sensible colour temperature, ideally 5000K.
Any thoughts? Good idea? Terrible idea? Or worth a try for the sake of a few ££ for the lights?
