Lighting Practice - Part II (Ring Light)
This is the second of three blog posts about recent lighting practice I've been doing for firefighter portraits
The ring light is....well....a light in the shape of a ring ;) LOL It's a 16" circular continuous light that I shoot through, with the person's face in the middle of it. It provides very flat lighting on the person's face, which creates virtually no shadows on the face. And when it's placed at specific distance from the person's face, the reflection of the light in the person's eyes creates a white ring around the pupil (between the pupil & iris). It is, without a doubt, a very unique look! Does it work for all portraits? nope....but decided to give it a shot with my firefighter work.
Let me know in the comments below what you think of these! I'd love to get some feedback as I'm debating whether or not to do these at the photobooth I mentioned in Part I.
