The Jarvie Window

Here’s a really interesting conceptual use of ring flash. The photographer, Scott Jarvie, asks his subjects to poke their heads through a large ring flash.

He shoots with an ultra wide lens so you see the tube, and get a comically distorted face. His subjects pull faces to make the whole thing even more appealing.

Because of the closeness you get a lovely large catch light ring and the light on the face is excellent modelling.
