A full review of the Orbis is coming, but I recently shot a wedding using it. How did it fare? Very well actually. It’s amazing how subjects tend to react when seeing a ring flash vs the standard flashes that they’re so used to seeing professionals carry. Here are some samples.
Even the best photographer could never use Jedi Mind tricks on light. A photographer that cannot deal with the absence of light is lost. That’s why we have tools to help us. The Gary Fong Pufferis a great tool. If all else fails, or if you need a more compact flash diffuser, it is there. The light that comes from your pop up flash can be strong, but with proper use the Gary Fong Puffer, somewhat supple light can be made.
