Ring of Light

orbis ringflash

You sometimes see fashion photographers on television using ring flashes in studio shoots. I did wonder if these fashion photographers were just showing off for the TV cameras. Then I noticed in some of my portrait shots a slight shadow under the chin which needed filling in. Maybe they weren’t just showing off and there was something in the ring flash.

Then I came across this YouTube video by That Nikon Guy in which Matt demonstrates the orbis Ringflash.

A relatively inexpensive addition to my kit, which modifies the light in a completely new way using the flash guns I already own, can only mean one thing – opening of the wallet for the credit card.

And here are my first shots, with thanks to Felicity and N22 Portrait Studio for the facilities.
