Paul Duncan's Ingenious Ringlight

You want ingenuity? Paul Duncan will show you some ingenuity. The photo at left was taken with his Bogus Artificial Ringlight Fabrication, or B.A.R.F., for short.

The cost? Darn-near free.

Materials? A piece of cardboard and some foil.

Intrigued? I was.

Try for a second to figure it out. Then check out this diagram to see how he created his elegant light light for nuthin'. And check out some of the other photos in his wonderful Flickr stream, too.

Nice work, Paul.
