This is an affordable lighting option for macro photography.
Very easy to make.
With macro it’s always best to use strong lights that take less space.
I actually got this headlight for the backyard initially, there was a mysterious animal that kept appearing around midnight…
We only saw its shape and we saw it was white and bigger than a squirrel…
One day it just moved on and we have not seen it since.
The headlight works well for the backyard too – gives enough light so that my camera can focus.
The power of the headlight is 3W (packaging) and it is very concentrated when the subject is near by so it appears stronger.
You will need some sort of a diffuser unless you like having persistent unwanted bokeh.
