DIY Ring-Flash with build imgs and sample shots...

Well, I came across this build link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/8472611@N04/sets/72157603816045949/ So I decided to make my own. I didn't follow his instructions to the "T" but the result is just about the same. Diagram and BOM here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/8472611@N04/2232236900/sizes/o/in/set-72157603816045949/

Sorry about the volume of images, but it should help explain the "cause and effect".

All the samples below were taken with the ring flash and it was my first time using the ring-flash.

Conclusion:

Well, it's not for every situation, but it's certainly a good piece of equipment to have in your lighting arsenal. With this ring flash I found that I can certainly shoot f/10+ at 1/200th+ most of the time...ambient BG exposure is somewhat difficult. I’m adding more build details here also: http://www.motleypixel.com/forum/index.php/topic,80.0.html
