Hi, I’m John from Wex Photographic. Welcome to Wex Tips.

When shooting macro photography, small torches or even the light from your smartphone are a great lighting alternative when light levels are not great and you don’t have a flash. Depending on your location, your camera’s auto white balance should give you the correct color balance; or, alternatively, shoot in RAW and correct this during your edit.
