Ringflash or Beauty Dish
I've been a bit intrigued lately with some of the ring-flash shots I've been seeing on the forum. I find myself liking the result of the catch-lights and effect. I shoot all my model stuff with octodomes for the most part and do not use or have a beauty dish in my studio.
That said, given the choice of the two...Ring flash or beauty dish... which do you prefer and why? I expect the light from the beauty dish would be much closer to the softness of a soft box but the shots I've seen with the AB ring flash do not seem to be much harsher either. The portability of the ring flash seems like a plus as well.
Help me before I do something stupid and buy both!
Thanks for the insight in advance
