I took delivery of an O-Flash adaptor today, a ring flash adaptor that fits onto your existing flash gun. It cost me about £20 ($30) so I wasn’t expecting the world from it. However tonight I was pleasantly surprised by how well it performed. Not the perfect catch light, but pretty even light on the face. I slipped another light behind Sam’s head with a pink for some sympathetic rim light, tying in nicely with the neon from the old cinema. I think it worked pretty well, it was nice not to have to worry about a large light modifier in the wind tonight. The ring flash will definitely be staying to hand.
