Ring flashes can come in handy for many shooting situations. Flash rings are especially great for creating even illumination giving subjects a flat look — very symmetric. One of the downsides to the flashes has been price, but the latest ring flash adapter from Photojojo has a price so low that even DIY options can cost more.
The Photojojo Ring Flash Adapter uses light from an existing flash unit on your camera. This light shines into the ring adapter and is channeled into a loop around the lens. The RFA isn’t perfect though, there are pieces of light missing at the 11 and 1 o’clock positions, but for $40 it’s worth having just to try. And, you’ll be able to try new lighting techniques and learn new creative moves.
