I know that Square Ring Flash is kind of an oxymoron, I mean how can it be both square and ring shaped. Well if they can do it in boxing, we can do it in photography. Making a square ring light is significantly easier than making a circled ring light, as strait lines as easier to handle. So easy in fact that you can be done with a ring light in half an hour and $10 as Isiah Xiong demostrates.
The build is centered around few pieces of Foamcore, which is a very popular material with DIY lighting builds, and is basically just a huge hollow square where you can fit a model’s face in the middle of it. Strobes go on any of the corners and bounce and reflect light inside the square.
As with other big ring lights, the surrounding give a very flattering look, while the catch lights are a bit of a personal taste.

P.S. We shared a similar concept built with florescents a while back, if you wanna go continuous light
P.P.S. – if you rather not handle a utility knife, we have a DIY ring flash in the DIYP store.
