    Macro ringlight tested in portrait photo

    I know some of you have been waiting for some test shots from this. An LED Macro Ringlight set from http://www.gadgetinfinity.com/produc...4&cat=0&page=1



    Tested it a couple weeks ago when I was doing snowflakes. Bad thing to try them on. So then I tried it on my daughter as a portrait project. I was standing maybe 5 feet away, and you can see the light dropoff in the first shot.


    Remaining shots are a sequence edits to the above photo in Lightroom.

    Auto WB and Tone


    Warm gel applied (Kubota Presets for LR)


    Cropped


    Need to do some more testing obviously, just haven't had time or motivation.

    Here is what it looks like on the camera. Power can either be battery or AC from the wall.

    It gives nice catch lights in the eyes.

    How big of a lens diameter will it accommodate? Have you tried it on any actual macro shots yet? Would be interesting to see how it performs on CLOSE up macros.

    Included rings are for 49,52,55,58,62,67mm. They screw on the end of your lens, so you would get a vignette if you zoomed out too far. Haven't shot an actual macro yet, but may in the next day or two if I get some time (and find something interesting to shoot).

    It would work on my 50mm...i think thats a 52mm ring(maybe 58??) but i use that thing only once in a blue moon...although, with some Kenko tubes, it could make for a pretty good macro setup. Canons ring flashes are nice but carry a stupid pricetag.

    Nearly any manufacturer branded flash accessory carries a stupid price.
