Please help: Not too long ago I saw a post on some lighting. The lighting was afixed to two stands and had a wooden frame. Four lights (neon) I think. I can not find that post. Would like some data on how to Beg, Borrow,Buy, or Build those type of lights.

It's a home made ring light. There's really nothing to it. It's four flourescent lights mounted to a frame of some sorts so that they form a sorta square doughnut. You shoot right through it. Maybe if you did a search for ring light or kino flow.

That was the poor man's Kinoflo. It uses four 48" fluorescent shop lights (two tubes each) and Chroma 50 bulbs. The Chroma 50 bulbs are daylight balanced and you should be able to get them at larger home centers. They should run around $5. I would caution you about using the super cheap shoplights. The ballasts in them don't last very long and they eat the bulbs when they go bad. I usually buy the next better grade that sell for $20-25. By the way, if someone is talking about a flo lite, that means fluorescent.

I just posted a few days ago photos of two of these setups, so you can see exactly how they can be put together:

Photos of the lights

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
