Used a big DIY ringlight for this shot. It's shot as a business portrait on location.

It's a beautiful light and great image. I think if you were to remove the flyaway hairs it would be even better.

Very pretty model. Some side lighting would enhance her features.

Thanks Pat McEntee for the feedback.

Nice job. I'm not a big fan of ring lights though, They make the catch lights look really strange in most cases. I've tried, but really can't think of a natural light source they emulate. Just my opinion.

Thanks Derek Brawdy. I only use the ringlight occasionally, my experience is that it works for some people, but with others it really doesn't. I personally like the effect and catch lights, but i totally agree it's a surreal look and doesn't emulate anything natural.

Also, I picked this photo to submit because I didn't see any ringlight portraits being submitted. There should be at least one!
