Ringlight Bonanza with Joris van den Heuvel
Not so long ago, I got a mail from a reader and fellow DIYer Joris van den Heuvel. Joris referred me to his site where to my astonishment I found a ringlight heaven.
Now, I know that the photography web has been sizzling with ringlights ever since David Hobby posted his challenge for a DIY ringflash, but this guy is something else. Got some cool stuff I haven’t seen anywhere else.
Starting out with a “regular” one liner LED ring light (AKA Ring Light 1.0), Joris evolved to a two liner LED array and even a three liner. BUT WAIT!!! It gets better. CFFL tubes are yet another version of a ring flash, and…..
Joris’s latest work in progress is a fiber optics based ring light (just saying fiber optics flash makes me feel sophisticated and cool). I say – stay tuned for this one – as my friends’ say this is something completely different. You know what; check em all out here.
If you have a Technorati account and a spear minute, I’d love it if you add DIYP as a fav. You can use this link.
