Macro Challenge #1 Reversing a Kit Lens + a fork

About This Webinar

Imagine you had only a kit lens, a reversing ring and a fork. How would you perform in this macro challenge?
Join photographers Matt Hill and Christian Domecq as they talk about how they fared.

It’s an exploration of creativity.
Matt is on the East Coast and shoots Nikon.
Christian is on the West Coast and shoots Fuji.
Each of them will only use a NOVOFLEX RETRO Adapter, a lens they already own and are restricted to a single subject - a household fork.

Originally aired Tuesday, 23 February 2021, this discussion between Christian and Matt about how they did it, what the challenges were and just how they made their images. Learn about gear, software and techniques.
