I have about 3/4 of a gallon of bubble fluid. Will that do?

Ring light not big enough .... this was shot at two feet from subject:



Backing up tofour feet but the ring inside the pupil (ugh). Any one have a best guess at the diameter of the one that Shawn posted? Back to the drawing board for v2.0

Shana: That should be plenty!

It does look about twice the size of yours.
admin
It probably needs twice the size and twice the lights to be more powerful.

Its on a 2x2 ft piece of plywood now. Thatd make it 4x4. Has the same amount of lights (8).

4x4 seems huge. Might gove it a go later.

honestly I think it is more like 2 1/2 feet in diameter, some real seat of the pants conversion of the wall plug from photosize to actual size suggest a ballpark of 8x conversion. No way that ring set up is 4 feet wide in my opinion.

What wattage did you use for the bulbs? perhaps that or sheer bulb size are contributing factors?

(I too think your setup looks pretty cool)

I stopped scavenging what I had and went to Home Depot picked up a sheet of 5/8"

Ripped in half (4'x4') and then whittled one half down to 3'x3'. I went with the three foot version:



Will post an image of it lit up in a few after I get them into LR. The image above is from the iPhone.

Still need to touch up a few spots and get a light stand mount on it and see if I can tip it over. Test shots tomorrow.

Wow .... even with a pencil line to trace I really suck at cutting circles. XD

No problem Shana about the goodwill thing. I slept all day on Thursday and never got to check flickr on Wednesday or Thursday. So I would have missed it completely. That's what happen when ya work nights.
I am going to just go there Saturday and find some good stuff.
See you Sunday!

Seven feet from subject - f/4 @ 1/60 @ ISO800
