Introduction: DIY Ring Light
Many photographers use DIY light modifiers with their flashguns or lights.
Step 1: Materials
- 1 metal bowl 22-26 cm diameter
- 1 metal cylinder 10cm dia, 10 cm long
- 1 plastic plate
Step 2: Make the Ball
I had a cylinder made in a tin shop but you can use a empty tin can from a fruit salad.
I also had the ball base cut in the shop.
Then I opened a hole in the side of the bowl for the flash
Step 3: Put Everything Together
Then I put everything together
I have the flash connected with an extension cord facing the subject. I use E-TTL mode. The lens of the camera goes through the bowl. The results are very good.
Step 4: Results
Here are the results
With some PP in Lightroom
Step 5: Thank You for Watching
