Must Have Cheap Macro Accessories: Part 1.

May 18, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I never leave the house without tweezers, a small paint brush, and my Gerber tool. Although PhotoShop can do amazing things when it comes to image processing, I always attempt to create the best image in camera as possible. The tweezers and paint brush easily fit into a centrifuge tube (left over from the days of my daughter’s science fair projects) which creates a nice compact and lightweight unit. Although I have been successful in removing debris by simply blowing on my subject, inevitably you’ll encounter a situation where blowing alone just won’t work. The Gerber tool is just handy to have out in the field. On rare occasions I’ll use the scissors to trim away a small piece of debris, vegetation, etc. to clean up my subject before capturing the image.

In the hickory tree image, I used the paintbrush to remove debris from the cracks and crevices of the tree trunk. After taking several images, I then used my tweezers to place a hickory nut fragment into the small crevice to create a different approach to my subject. Both the paintbrush and tweezers were invaluable in this instance.
