Here is an inexpensive gear tip. If you photograph flowers, macro or still life, you should order a Plamp today. This simple clamp/arm device is very helpful during shoots, and gives you a ‘third hand’ to hold reflectors or move things out of the way.
I’ve been shooting a lot of macro in my backyard recently, and I am using both reflectors and lume cubes to add light to my flower images. With the Plamp, I attach one end (the heavy duty clamp) to my tripod, and use the other clamp to hold a reflector. You can also hold a diffuser over your flower, or use the Plamp to hold a distracting plant out of your frame. The arm is stiff enough you could also use it to hold a small action cam (GoPro). The Plamp is lightweight, and costs about $40. If you shoot a lot of macro and flowers, it is well worth the money. Enjoy!
