This is day 9 (Part 1)

Today I felt like building something and I have been wanting a ringflash as of late so I built myself one. Obviously as you can see from the pictures it needs a little bit of work but overall I am pretty pleased with the light it puts out.​utz (external link)​strutz (external link)​m (external link)

This is day 9 (Part 2)

After a few modifications, I think I'm satisfied with my ringflash setup. There is just one more thing that needs to be done until it is 100% complete. I will probably post a tutorial for how I made it once I have done that.


This is day 10

Took a three hour nap after hittin up the donut store with the neighbie Paige. Then started on a bit of homework and finished my DIY ringflash. I think my day 11 is going to be some up close photos of it. Anyways I have been playing around with a bunch of different light setups and I really really like what we created tonight. Definitely some excellent beauty lighting for sure. I definitely suggest you guys trying this lighting setup out if you are looking for a good setup for beauty portraits.​m (external link)​utz (external link)​strutz (external link)
