Canon EOS 5D Mark II
EF85mm f/1.8 USM
1/100 sec,f/10
ISO 50
AlienBees ABR 800 Ring Flash

Starting to get used to the ring flash. It’s really fun to use and gives interesting lighting. I love the halo effect. The trick is to stop the lens down as you move toward the subject and open it up as you move away. This is because you are shooting in manual and the flash source moves with you changing the exposure. It’s not that hard to get used to and it becomes quite intuitive. Very little Photoshop  post -processing. I’m finding as my lighting gets more refined the Photoshop required is minimal.
