But it's broken.

AGAIN!

Same deal, the ring gets bent and the protective glass covers break.

I'm getting annoyed....

I finally got a ring light from B&H that wasn't broken!!!!

Hooray! Third time's the charm, right?

I plugged it in and it worked too! So my used "generator" works, my ring light works.

So it's time to set up a shoot. I'm excited.

To summarize the advice I've gotten here:

1) Watch out for red eye .

2) Keep a fixed distance between the light and the model. Exposure changes rapidly.

3) Consider using a tripod. It does seem unwieldy without a camera attached.

4) Use the model's body to block the hotspots from the light.

5) Keep the model a couple of feet in front of the background to get the all-around shadow.

6) Shiny backgrounds look best I think.

I'll post pics when I get them.

Thanks you all who answered my questions and put up with me whining while I was waiting to get a non-broken light, especially Andy Pearlman.

Your welcome. Now one more thing: don't be afraid to try breaking all those rules. You might find some interesting stuff that way. Have fun.
