New Metz Macro IR Ring Flash

Metz has just released a must-have product for macro photographers. The new 15 MS-1 Digital Macro works directly off the IR transmission of an on-camera flash. Because it works off the IR, this one flash unit works on eight different brands of cameras. Although designed for macro work, the Metz 15 MS-1 also has enough power for ring-lighting portraits. For more information see our product page on the Metz 15 MS-1.

New Paper Options for Black and White

Superior Seamless offers two additional options for paper backgrounds. Ultra Black is 20% deeper and slightly warmer black than Jet Black. This will definitely help anyone working with low-key in a smaller studio. The Eco Bright White is the same brilliance as Arctic White but is made from 30% post-consumer waste, making it Green Certified. Tallyn's carries a very large selection of Seamless paper rolls and backgrounds.
