I shopped around and found a few ring flashes and I finally settled on The Orbis Ring Flash with the orbis arm (bracket) and is a great piece of gear. I went to Amazon.com, price $237.90 but couldn't get them to ship to APO, go figure. I finally ordered from B&H and used my ASMP discount, total cost $239 and got it within 7 days! I followed the directions, assembled the Orbis arm and Orbis ring flash. It took me awhile to adjust to the weight and bulk of everything but soon I was totally oblivious to entire issue of bulk.
I Picked up my 50mm, Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 580 EX II speedlight. set my ISO to 400, Orbis recommends that, set my flash in TTL/auto mode, set my camera to manual and began to document the event. I used f-stops between 1.2 - 4 and got great results which I posted here. I have plans to post more images in the future so stay tuned, thanks for viewing.
