Well how’s this for a massive win/win tip – recently I started looking for a reflector for macro photography, and did a little bit of googling and made a couple of phone calls. I came up with pricing from as cheap as $20 or so right through to $100 for a set of 5 that were about 1 metre in diameter. Fortunately for me, I didn’t pull the trigger and received some stellar advice from one of my guests during my Tarkine trip a few weeks back. Go out and buy yourself a packet of smoked salmon she says, and take a close look at the packaging before you throw it away she says…
Introducing the all new Smoked Salmon Reflector for Macro Photography!
I thought 1 metre reflectors were somewhat unnecessary given I mostly shoot tiny little fungi in the deep dark rainforest, and low and behold, this is a perfect solution. Fits right into my camera bag, doesn’t really matter if it gets wet or crumpled or ruined – I’ll just have to buy some more smoked salmon if the worst comes to the worst!

For the record, I don’t know if all smoked salmon products come with the free reflector (or is the smoked salmon free with all reflector purchases??) but the one I purchased was from Huon. The reflector is 15.5cm x 19cm.
