At Home Macro Photography with Bob Coates

by Chamira Young

Today we wanted to feature the creative macro work of Bob Coates! We originally shared this image on our Facebook page. Check out the behind the scenes image of his setup using his Platypod, along with the goosenecks and Litra torches. You’ll be sure to get some inspiration for your own work!

Tip: You can easily screw the Platypod on top of the tripod, just like Bob did this in this picture. That way you can take advantage of using the goosenecks and @litragear torches placed on the Platypod, and easily alternate between using the Platypod on low angles and small spaces.
