Canon Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX Flash Sample Pictures

Canon Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX Flash Sample Pictures
Blue Jay Close-up Picture Blue Jay Close-up Picture
This Blue Jay had a navigational problem and spent a short amount of time recovering from an impact.
 
The reflection in the jay's eye clearly gives away the lighting source for this shot - a ring flash. The Canon Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX Ring Flash to be specific. A lens-mounted macro flash makes it easy to chase your subjects with action-stopping lighting instantly ready.
 
100mm  f/11.0  1/200s  ISO 100
Botanical Tulip Close-up Botanical Tulip Close-up
When your lens can focus close enough to completely fill the frame with the subject, there is no longer a concern about what the background looks like. In this particular composition, I was attempting to make the lines of the tulip curve through the frame.

Yellow Rose Super Close-up Yellow Rose Super Close-up
Give me a rose, the Canon MP-E 65mm Macro Lens and a flash and I can get lost for hours. At this super-close focus distance, the DOF (Depth of Field) becomes extremely shallow. I chose to keep the edge of a petal in focus and to allow the rest of the rose to smoothly blur into transitions of color.
 
At this focus distance, even a macro flash results in some shading. Here, I used this shading to my advantage.

Bird of Prey Feather Close-up Bird of Prey Feather Close-up
When photographing this close to a subject, it becomes difficult to get light past the lens. The Canon MR-14EX Macro Ring Light makes this task simple. The feather is evenly lit and, with the quick burst of flash providing all of the light, very sharp even though shot with a narrow aperture under dim lighting.

Tulip Stamen Picture Tulip Stamen Picture
A lens having up to 5x magnification available takes you into another world of compositions. Here, I cut part of a tulip flower away to gain a perspective seldom seen. A macro flash makes lighting in tight spots easy.
 
EXIF information does not tell me what magnification was specifically used for this shot, but 3x is my guess.
 
65mm  f/11.0  1/160s  ISO 100
Grape Hyacinth Close-up Grape Hyacinth Close-up
A super-macro lens allows a new perspective on a common flower - a Grape Hyacinth in this case.
 
65mm  f/14.0  1/200s  ISO 100
Partially Opened Botanical Tulip Partially Opened Botanical Tulip
Botanical Tulips are amazingly beautiful. The biggest problem I have with them is that they immediate close when I cut them and bring them into my studio.
 
My studio strobes apparently cause them to open slightly - making them ideal macro subjects. Note the various color transitions within the flower petals. A macro ring flash tends to hide textures in subjects, but the variety of colors in this subject takes over the image.
 
To hold cut flowers in the studio (or anywhere else), I use a water tube commonly found on flowers purchased from a florist. I attach a flexible clamp to this tube for positioning.

Macro Ring-Flashed Flower Macro Ring-Flashed Flower
The shadow circling the center of this flower gives away the light source used to capture the photo of it - a macro ring flash.
 
65mm  f/13.0  1/200s  ISO 100
Tulip Stamen Super Macro Picture Tulip Stamen Super Macro Picture
Cut away the side of a tulip flower and get close - SUPER close. The tulip itself provides the brilliantly-colored background.
 
Lighting in tight spaces can be very challenging. In this situation, a macro ring flash is ideal.

Unraveling Botanical Tulip Unraveling Botanical Tulip
A Botanical Tulip begins unraveling its beautiful packaging. This picture was taken at 1x magnification - at the longest focus distance available on this lens.

The Color Yellow The Color Yellow
This picture is just one of many available in a common yellow rose - if you have the lens for it of course. Then (men) boost you wife's support of your passion by giving the roses to her.

1939 New York World's Fair Stamp 1939 New York World's Fair Stamp
Lighting small subjects including flat work is easy with a Macro Ring Light such as the Canon MR-14EX. Photography does not get much easier than this example, but there are many real world applications for this work.

Unique Blue Jay Perspective Unique Blue Jay Perspective
With the unqiue situation of being able to get very close to a Blue Jay, I was looking for equally unique compositions of the Blue Jay.
