This video from Mark Wallace is all about ringflashes, what they are, and how to use them. Using a Acute2/D4 Ring flash and Softlight Reflector, he demonstrates the differences between using a ring flash on camera and off, as a key light and fill light, and between it and a traditional softbox.
He says, “it’s hard to pull people away from the ring flash because it’s just so much fun and you get great results.”
