Home Made Ring flashes. Nice one!I just cant see why you didn't use six lights to complete the effect.Has anyone ever tried using many clear tubes or pipes (kinda like basic fiber optics) to have several controllable directional beams from one flash?The idea could be adapted to a "three or four tube" rig and have them equi-spaced around barrel to simulate ring flash. Maybe a clear hose surrounded by aluminum foil would work to carry the light down?note: Do not try this using the tubes that the internet is made out of.

Wonder if there is a translucent white bundt-cake holder for sale somewhere...
Yes, Nordic Ware makes a somewhat translucent one (part of their "platinum" series, "cake taker") but it has a handle across the middle. The clear one could be frosted with some chemical solution, I'm sure.

I would love to see your set up with the flash "tied to the lens".....i would expect a lot of red eyes effect coming from such a setup.Wouldnt it be very cumbersome to lug this around in a dinner or a party?
