Hey Dani, that's a cool result from your DIY ring light. The catchlights are sweetness. Any particular reason for the 1/800's shutter speed? Were you shooting more movement in the other shots from the session? I'm not implying in any way that I think your choice is incorrect, just picking your brain.

I'm sorry to get in the way but I believe Dani sometimes uses aperture priority to make photoshoots more dinamic so that the model doesn't get bored while changing settings. I don't know if that's the case or he does it in outdoor sessions only as he changes the spot.

Samuel hit the nail on the head.

Adam, there's no downside to shooting a fast shutter speed, right?
I don't look or care about settings. I shoot in A priority and concentrate on the important stuff like poses, connecting with subject, expressions and light.

Is the ring light a continuous source or strobe?
