"FIBER OPTIC MACRO FLASH RING"

 

I wanted to share this with all the photographers here at flickr.

I really didn't want to spend $300 plus dollars on a flash ring, so I tried a

lot of different ways to light my macro shots. I used white board, mirrors, and

hand holding my flash with various poor results not to mention the time

involved in setting up the shot. Then it came to me fiber optics. This is my

first proto type with very inexpensive cable, and the results are fantastic.

All for a total investment of $11.40! I will be happy to go into detail about

the construction, and materials with anyone who needs help, just send me a

message. My next few posts will be examples of how well it works. In

cooperation, jim
