    I just made my own ring light for free using strands of old xmas lights.

    see here:
    http://theglobalphotographer.blogspot.com/2008/01/portland-strobist-gathering-meets-diy.html

    and did a few quick test shots of myself sitting here in the computer chair.

    (trying to hold the 3 foot ring light ( i dont have a stand yet) operate the camera, and be in the picture all at once was quite the chore..)

    hopefully in the next few days i can get someone to pose for me soi can try it out properly

    but it seems to work alright.

    makes the eyes rather sparkely

    Yeah, I like the first one. I kind of like the sparkly eye thing too.
