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.
Fall is in the air again, which means– among other things– that I’m back in the classroom, teaching my digital photography class for kids. I have some great students this year, ranging in age from 10-14, who have already impressed me with their curiosity, talent, and desire to learn. One of the things that separates my class from other photography classes is that I don’t require my students to have a particular level of camera. As a result, I have students with DSLRs working side-by-side with students who photograph with the most basic of point-and-shoot models. By making it less about the equipment and more about how they see the world around them, some pretty cool stuff happens.
