Was digging through my archive looking to see if I had any shots floating around I’d forgotten about. I came across this little gem.
What I really love about this is its entirely done with a ring light, despite it not having ring lighting characteristics. There shouldn’t be any shadows on his face (sides of nose). It should be flat, but yet there they are.
The secret to this… I was about 2 inches from his face. The hole for the lens allowed the ring to actually light from the sides instead of kick so flat… Yep, lighting geek here all the way.
