Sarah

By Baden      
I recently made a two ft ring light with 10 house hold 40w lamps, this is the first test image from the shoot!
The main reason for building the ring light, was to still be able to shoot some of my vintage film camera's which do not have flash, now the winter months are here!
I have fallen in love with the lighting from the ring light, almost the same effect as a beauty dish. I have built the light with a dimmer switch installed, so I still have some control and could move up to 60w if needed.

Very nice work.
I think you over done the eyes.
They gone from sharp to looking not real.
Comp very nice great detail.
Just be careful.

You are the second person to tell me I have over done the eyes Dave, but the truth is I have not touched them! I can see how people think I have edited the eyes to be honest.

It works well except for the ring reflecting in her eyes. You can sort this out in Photoshop, but its difficult to do in the shoot when shes looking right into the ring.

What Willie said: the quality of the light is wonderful, but the reflections of the individual bulbs is giving a bit of a "rabbit in the headlamps" look to this shot.

I was not going for the startled look, but I like the ring light reflection, as stated almost like a beauty dish.

Comparing with them to without them is the way to make a choice I think.
