So here’s my first ringlight shot…. I did it myself, i mean the ringlight!

Here’s some pictures how to do a ringlight at home! (this is not mine)

Just few tips, how can you make this ringlight better (not on the image):
– try to create it that you don’t have to use manual mode on the flash and don’t have to use some wireless connection between the camera and the flash. you can see a picture of what i’m talking about…
– take a white paper on the front of the ringflash, because the light is very strong and your model will be blind… :D

So give it a try my friend! It’s free! :)
Good luck!

This was taken today. Placed in a transparent tank and there was a red paper under it. I got my camera with the flash (Canon Speedlite 550EX) on it. I grabbed a pipette and did the drops falling… And God knows how can it be, but I got two splashes at the same time!! So yeah, the color is natural….. no Photoshop!!
