[MACRO] Field test of the pringles ring flash
Jul 4, 2012

i finally got to test my diy ring flash (thread here: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1042&message=41903679 ) last sunday. got lots of photos (though not that many, quite disappointed actually). i have only managed to process 4 photos, 3 of them stacked via PS CS5.

here are the results,

focus stacked:

while the ring flash, earned praises from the people i was with, due to its thoughtful and creative construction, it performed rather miserably xD. probably because i put in too much diffusing material that the light turned out to be too weak to balance the ambient light. thankfully, the nex DR saved me in PP. another is the mechanism in which i channeled the light into the ring may not have been the optimum solution.

oh well, back to the drawing board. :/

however, i hope you enjoy these photos. thanks for viewing.


here's a view of where i've been:
