    My studio bought a Ring Flash for me to play around with (i know it's super sweet to just ask and have them buy you one!!! HAHA). I got the Alien Bee ARB800. It is much harder to use than I originally thought it would be but i think I got some cool pictures! Some of them are with just the ring flash shooting through the middle of it while others are used with the RF off to the side of the camera and with other lights. Let me know what you think!

    Im going to start off with my favorite one:

    What I find to be the most effective use of the ring flash is when you have your subject backed up close to a surface which can cast that thin shadow that ring flashes are famous for.
