Glad to see that you're putting the light to good use! I think you need one more :)

Shooting directly through the center while being a short distance away, produces that signature "music video" look which Lorinda refers to. Ring lights not only provide ample light under the chin, they provide an even flattening to the image by filling in bags under eyes and more of an even ratio to reduce the look of wrinkles, blemishes, etc, they're also well know for putting that big circle catch light in the eyes that screams professional. It's the final piece of the lighting puzzle that says "trust" - if that's what you're after. You see, dark eyes appear lifeless and cold when not intentionally lit - viewers get the impression that something isn't right. Some get lucky and unintentionally get that look, they don't know why, but they like it..maybe by having a large softbox nearby, or a huge piece of white foam core. The Diva Ring Light makes it easy to get this look repeatedly.

If anyone else on here wants one - I have a few left, heck, I'll even through in a free 8' stand for DVi chronies - just put "Free 8' light stand per Guy" in the comments field during check out.

You've got a deal, Guy! I shouldn't be spending the money but am not passing up an offer like that. :)

Oh, yeah! Just received the light and [nice!] stand and turned it on the first middle-aged, semi-wrinkled face I could find. It works GREAT! No, I won't be sharing footage of this first look but plan to shoot something very soon.

Thank you so much, Guy!!! You are the best. :)
