CLS/Macro Box Video

The folks over at The Imaging Resource have a neat little video tutorial that features a guy showing how he uses Nikon CLS lighting (and a commercial version of our own DIY Macro Studio) to quickly shoot objects at a consumer electronics trade show.

The lighting stuff is kind of specific to the Nikon CLS system. But what really surprised me is the way they have rigged the macro box to be able to go vertical when they have almost zero working space. You learn something new every day. And obviously, these kinds of photos are very doable using manual flash and your triggering method of choice.

This assumes their subjects have a tripod mount (they are photographing cameras.) But it is a great example of thinking outside of the box. Or at least turning the box on its side.

They also have a pretty good review explaining the CLS basics.
