I’ve been intrigued for some time by the Orbis; advertised as the Orbis Ring Flash, though it doesn’t have a flash, but rather is a donut shaped plasticie diffuser placed on your flash.

The Orbis arrived today, and fellow photographer Lane Chevrier graciously agreed to be my subject as I experimented with it. Photographing Lane is always a treat; I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who can produce as many expressions as he can. We decided to use a very wide angle lens, very close to his mug….

…the laugh meter definitely hit 10.

ps: ladies … he’s single….
