McClamp In Use

Nancy was a photography friend and a wonderful person with amazing vision. She passed away in 2011 from cancer. To visit her site:


As you can see Nancy has her flash off-camera and cable trigger. Also, in case you were wondering, she is smiling behind her hand.

A reflector is good to bring along to add some warmth and mood to your macro-photography. Here the McClamp allows some freedom in positioning the reflector while you concentrate on composition.

In the studio I am finding countless ways to put the McClamps to use. Here I have two McClamps holding a 36” reflector. The beauty of the McClamp is the abiltiy to change the angle of the reflector easily.
