    My friend Angie was celebrating her birthday and ordered me to break out the camera. I have a Ghetto Ring Light™ I haven't played with in forever, so I figured it was a good opportunity to try it with the 5D MKII.

    The expressions in #2 are good, but #1 only the guy on the left is giving anything, so it kinda take away from the pic a little. I know you cant help that...

    However, im curious about this ghetto ring...

    Test before securing the velum.

    On the above posts' shots the top coverage wasn't very good, but that's because it just sits on the light and the light was pretty far into the bowl. I need to make a bracket so I can use something like my 580EX II in there for more power.

    That looks a lot like the one I built as a ring flash.
