    Creative Photo Ideas for March: 05 Shoot with a ring flash

    Originally developed for dental photography, ringflashes are now more commonly associated with fashion portraits.

    The characteristic doughnut-shaped catchlights and soft shadow halo created by these circular flashes are seen as a desirable quality for those who want to get the Rankin look.

    From macro favourites like the Sunpak Auto 16R, which also works well for close-up portraits, to the Orbis Ringflash Adapter, which enables you to get the distinctive ringflash lighting pattern from your existing flashgun, it’s easier than ever to incorporate a ringflash into your everyday photography.

    * A ringflash surrounds the camera lens, so you’ll need to check the diameter of both to ensure they’ll be compatible.
    * Macro ringflashes attach to the front of a compatible lens and act as a giant softbox for close-up subjects, illuminating them evenly from all sides.
    * Small ringflashes are effective as ‘fill’ light, opening up the shadows on a subject.
