Reflector for Macro Photography Tip

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!

As if it were made especially for this purpose, one side of the card is gold…

…and the other is silver!

And it fits PERFECTLY into the slot on the flat side of my camera bag 🙂

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.
