    ...and the first pics of my girlfriend in the living room :hsd:
    She was sitting right beside me when i was doing quick edits.. lol, so needless to say i didn't "smooth" out her skin :mamoru:

    Turns out the 580ex and/or cactus triggers sync with the ringflash.
    4 canon speedlights + ABR800 FTW!

    Those look exceptionally harsh for a ringflash, and you don't get the nice catchlights.

    too far away, with teh power cranked up too high. Its new to him, give him time. plus it looks as if he may have shot without the diffuser on.

    to get that o so cool ring flash catch light, you need to be freaking close. I would go ahead and just try it out with teh modelng lamp at full blast and just get close enough without popping for you to see teh catch lights. That will help you determine how close you need to be. When i do Ringlight stuff though, i never use it as a main light. It makes a great fill light, but i dont really like the super ringflash cool look that everyone likes.
