Some recent shots with the ring flash
Such an amazing light source. The DIY Ringflash kit with a Nikon SB-800 connected to the camera with an SC-28. D800 with 50mm 1.8G. Camera settings: 1/200sec; f2.8; ISO400. Flash set to manual and about 1/8 power. Hand held run and gun.

Tip: Shallow depth of field works best. Use a large aperture and get tight. Have a background close; part of the look is the shadow thrown on the background by the flash.
