Homemade Underwater ringflash

We stumbled upon Alexander Mustard’s website where instead of buying a purpose made underwater ringflash he decided to make one.

As he states it’s "Not a fully functioning ring-flash, but a ring reflector box powered by my existing strobes. It is not an original idea, I have seen it done on land, and the designs seem ideal for submergence with no moving or electrical parts. The entire system is intended to fill up with water quite happily."

"my ring diffuser certainly produced ring-flash lighting and fulfilled its brief in being inexpensive and lightweight for travel. It is excellent for shooting small subjects, getting light inside complex shaped subjects and for revealing patterns."
