Well, with all due respect, the skin tones look a little blown out on this test image. But, I imagine, you haven't even begun to start playing with it and getting the finer details and workings down. Good luck and have fun, ringflashes can be a great tool!!!

I agree that it's a fun light to shoot with. It does look a little too hot on her face. I know I have to take a few test shots to get the level right, and then if you move closer or further away, you have to adjust to make it right.

I'm sure you will have lots of fun learning it.

Thanks for sharing. I agree she does look a bit hot. I appreciate any tips from those of you that have used ring flashes in the past. Since I am not lucky enough to do this for a living, its a God send that you all help and teach!

Well now that you have it you have to learn how to use it, but thats the easy part right.
Nice shot and model, she probably still cant see anything or colors yet. My eyes hurt taking the shots after a few hours. Thanks Igor
Just a few hints:
-Use your meter on her nose.
-WB how are you doing that Manual, Expo, Grey Card, McSomething.
-Look at your Graph see what that looks like.
Some of best pictures I took where with the Ring Flash its fun its a challenge, hey you can always fix it up in Light Room or Aperture send more as you take them.

-Bill
