I’m dying to get a ring flash. Well to be more precise, I’m dying to try a ring flash. I don’t plan on using it for macro photography, but as a portrait light very similar to some popular fashion photographers. I’m not entirely sure that it is the look we’re going for, but the idea is cool and some of the sample images I’ve seen are quite stunning. The problem is, how do you get to try something without having to drop wads of cash? … You make it!!

I’ve found several links highlight about how guys have built their own ring flashes. Most are bulky and ugly and light unevenly and you would never use them during a gig, but hey, in the spirit of hacking, I gotta give it up to these guys!

More snow. Ice skating and indoor penny hockey (it’s sad really when you resort to playing this to pass the time). If you want to know what “penny hockey” is just email us and ask, we’ll send you the rules of the game.

Okay, any one else getting cabin fever, yet?
