    The Cheapskate’s $1.99 Ring Flasher

    Open to suggestions for improving it, I’m working on light seals and fine-tuning, and eventually some sort of camera mount. I spent under $6 for the pie tins, and got enough to make 3 reflectors, hence the name.

    I really like this idea….

    Ditto, I’m interested in seeing where this goes. Do you have any sample shots you’ve taken with it yet? I’m wondering if you can get the halo effect out of a couple pie tins.

    I haven’t sampled it in a subject yet, because it still lacks a secure mounting. It’s extremely light, and I hope to use that fact to advantage when cobbling together some way to hold it onto the flash & camera.

    I thought duct tape was always applicable in situations like this 😆
