Wide Angle Shot Problem
Posted 05 April 2003 - 10:15 PM
the picture always produces a 'ring' in the picture.
Unless I do not use the strobe, then will it only not have the 'ring'
Any suggestions and ideas why this is so?:freak:
Attached below is one of the 'ringed' shot

Your picture is showing the reflection of your lens inside the port, caused by light entering the port. Try moving your strobe back a bit, behind the lens.
If you have a wide beam on the strobe you may need to angle it away from your subject a little and just use the edge of your flash beam, keeping stray light to a minimum.

So basically, I need to reposition my strobe, away/behind my lens to slove the problem right?
Maybe some of the strobe light is hitting th lens.
Ok, i will give it try soon

If you have your strobe in the same plane as the camera; even if out of the picture frame you may get a hot spot at the side of your picture. If you move the strobe behind the plane of the film you can limit or eliminate this effect.
If you have only one strobe you can hand hold it to get these effects. With two you need to get sets of the long strobe arms. Ike, TLC and Ultralight all make such arm systems that work well.
I find it easier to get good lighting of the subject while limiting backscatter by using two strobes.
