Macro Flower Photography and exploring Microscopic Photography with diffuser ring flash

May 30, 2016  •  1 Comment

I am generally not fond of point and shoot cameras, but my new one - The Olympus Tough TG 4 is waterproof and shockproof. Plus, I purchased the ring flash FD 1 diffuser to allow great macro and microscopic photography in soft light. You can hold the camera right into the center of the flower for some amazing results.

Symmetry is captivating.  All hand held since the flash freezes motion.

I would love to get a micro lens, for my Nikon D7000 camera but I just saw what you did with this Olympus. Of the two would you suggest a Nikon micro lens over this Olympus camera for higher quality?
