Innovative, proprietary design by Les Saucier, the Saucier Macro FlowerPod™ is a tool that gives serious macro photographers that third, or even fourth, hand we often need. For use in the field and on the table top, our Macro FlowerPod™ lends itself to better macro images by giving the shooter more control over the most challenging elements of macro photography - the background, the wind (motion) and lighting.
Now you can take control of your background by using the FlowerPod™ to hold a fabric backdrop or other objects that compliment your hero subject. In the field, The FlowerPod™ can hold the subject in place when wind or vibration is a challenge. Want to highlight an area with a beam of light? The FlowerPod™ is able to hold a small flashlight in the right location at the right angle, freeing your hands for other tasks. Need a diffuser? No problem. The FlowerPod™ can be used to hold a small diffuser or reflector. You may even consider using multiple FlowerPods™ to really take charge of your shooting environment.
Each Flowerpod™ comes in a black nylon draw-string bag for easy storage in your camera bag. In the nylon bag, the FlowerPod™ weighs one pound. The tripod legs extend up to 40 inches, and the holder measures an additional nine inches when in a straight position. And now, each Macro FlowerPod™ kit includes our GroundPod™, which is designed to be used with the FlowerPod™ head and inserted into the ground when your subject is very low and beyond the reach of the FlowerPod™ tripod.
Les designed the original Macro FlowerPod™ as a solution to some of the challenges of shooting macro. Macro photography was his first love, discovering in a science lab while researching insects that macro opened up a whole new world to photographers and viewers alike. Les is one of the Southeast's best-known macro photographers and teachers of the art, and he's always happy to share his "secrets," one of them being his Macro Flowerpod™.
