By popular demand (read: one or two requests), here are a few more shots using our DIY ring flash set up from last weekend. A lot more tweaking remains to be done to the rig itself, as well as to how we’re using it, but it’s a pretty cool toy to play around with.
One thing I forgot to add yesterday was the cost of constructing the ring flash. Following Tejada’s suggestion, most of the materials were obtained from Home Depot for around $25 (I already had metal shears, tape, tripod, magic arm, and I just used an old white shirt as the diffuser), so it was pretty affordable. His tutorial says he did it for $20 (though he does say he had a lot of the materials on hand already). I’m guessing if you followed his last steps to construct the flash bracket, your total would jump quite a bit.
