I have wanted to try a ring light for a while, but don't know much about them and don't think I will use one enough to justify buying one. I decided to build one. I will show pictures of the light it self soon, it is still in the works, but I was playing around with it seeing what it was like.
The hardest part is focusing on what is not there. I have to find something to set approximately where I am going to be while I go behind the camera to set up the shot and focus.
I decided that if I really want to get the cool catch light I need to double the size of the light. I am already at about 24"
And yes, I am oh so very gangsta.
