Nowadays, most photographers only display their work online. However, we’ve recently seen how it can limit you and negatively affect your work, especially if you mainly share it on Instagram. So, photographer decided to make a printed, tangible portfolio and he raised it to a whole new level. He built everything from scratch, from woodwork to the carrying case. It took him 18 months to finish it, and he ended up with a unique portfolio he can be proud of.
Honestly, I cannot believe this went under the radar for me. Photographer Dani Diamond just broke our ring light record, not by making it any bigger, but by adding a clever inner ring making it the first double-ringed DIY light I’ve seen.
The outer diameter is 4 feet and it features 12 bulbs in the inside ring and another 15 (actually 14) bulbs on the outside, making it a 27 bulbs monster. The only bulb that is missing, making it a 26-bulber is the topmost bulb that Dani uses as a clever mounting point, booming it rather that mounting it on a light stand.
