    I have just been talking to a long retired draughtsman who worked on the development of new vehicles.

    He told me of the works photographer who had a very unusual and ingenious take on the normal ring flash.

    He would set a shot up to the point of clicking the shutter, then he would start a high wattage lamp swinging in wide circles above and around the subject; apparently it results in a completely shadow free photograph.

    I love lateral thinking.

    Any samples?

    Now.... Let's see.

    At a shutter speed of, say, 1/125th of a second, what radial speed would the lamp need to swing at to get a complete revolution?

    Or, conversely, how far away would the lamp need to be to avoid over-exposure at ISO 100 and an aperture of f/22 if a sufficiently slow shutter speed was employed?

    ND filters?
