The Backscatter Mini Flash MF-1 is the perfect light + snoot combination for any serious underwater macro photographer. Its tiny size can get into the tightest spots and the companion Optical Snoot OS-1 makes it the perfect macro strobe to give you the creativity you've been missing.

By far the number 1 question he gets asked is “Where do I put my strobes?” His simple Zen master answer to the student is always, “What do you want to light?” If you don’t know what you want to light you’ll never know where to put your strobes. Join Jim and Robin in a video tutorial that explores a philosophical journey on the breakdown of figuring out what you want to light, how to light it, and of course where to put those $#@%! strobes.
