DIY Ring Flash
Ring flashes are often used for macro and glamour portrait photography, but that kind of professional equipment can be quite expensive. Wolf made his own using a bundle of fiber optic strands originating at his camera’s flash and terminating at an acrylic ring he cut himself. The benefit of this method is that all of his camera’s automatic flash functions still work perfectly. Nice work! [via Hack a Day]

    Been looking for an U.S. distributor of fiberoptics and the Spencer Gifts fiber optic lights are an expensive alternative. Can anyone provide a double-indirect to a couple?
