Lenin - Very nice using the sun as rim light.

Love the color saturation you've got going here too.

Thank you very much =] It's an old trick I learned from Strobist.com

Still trying to figure out if it's worth it to use a single strobe fired via off camera shoe cord or get a ring light for this beach shoot I am doing this weekend. I'm also debating whether or not it's smarter to use a stand and umbrella or a bounce it off of a reflector.

If I bounce it off of a reflector, do I use the gold side, silver side, or white board? I guess there is no way to know until I try? I'm thinking the bounce will diffuse the light more evenly no?

Maybe I should just use a softbox attachment and have a friend hold the flash?

in my mind, the ring flash is best used next to something, like a wall. A single strobe seems more appropriate to me; but YMMV.

Ring flash is good to be balanced as fill when using with a multiple light setup.

i guess I see it more as a main light, even though any light can be used as fill. the characteristics of the ring make it more suited as a main, IMO.

Here is an example to illustrate to you how effective a ring light can be by adding that extra UMPH when used properly. I did not take this so please do not credit me; just a friend. Although I think he was using a fluorescent ring. You get the idea ...?

When i first started i read as much as i could and looked at diagrams. I didn't start understanding flash work until i actually set my lights up and just played with them.
