Ring lights have really become our favorite in the recent past and easily the new black for all the TikTokers and Vloggers out there. Without any further due, let’s dive into the manual of ring lights.
What Is a Ring Light?
Well, since the uprising craze of video making and photography among the newer generation was blossoming. Ring lights swiftly paved their ways into our life and for the most part changing it upside down. As with the minimal investment we are able to get a professional tone to our videos.
These ring lights are basically a circular object, therefore, sometimes known to many as circular lights as well. They are usually fixed around your camera lenses, providing with even illumination for all kinds of stuff.
Getting Your Ring Lights Set Up
Getting your ring lights set up in the right position isn’t a hefty task. However, choosing the best ring lights for your setup is the trickiest part as you should know what are you setting it up for.
Although, using a ring light doesn’t require any professional training but you must have an eye for capturing the right moment. When we talk about how to use a ring light, we should understand that the ring light is placed just adjacent and quite close to the camera lens. Consequently, allowing us to minimize the number of shadows in the long run. (that’s a great thing.)
Since we’re placing these illumination device so close to our lens, it perfectly allow us to capture the most miniature of detail within the picture. You’ll be able to capture even the smallest details. It makes this device a perfect companion for our fashion shoots, make-up tutorials, and food Vlogs.
In addition to that, the pictures captured in the run are having the most vibrant colors you can ever achieve due to optimal balance of illumination. In fact, the best feature allows you to even mimic the natural daylight into your shoot.
An important point to remember is the higher will be your lumen, stronger the light will be, and the accuracy of color will be clearly visible
Consideration of ‘Temperature’ of the Light
For beginners or novices, it may seem to be a bit a confusing. But if you’re affiliated with this industry for long, you should know that every picture has an effect to it which it leaves on the viewer, like maybe the warmer pictures and videos or the more cooler ones.
This device aesthetically mimics the effect and allow us to use the feature of the dimmer to get you a warm light or maybe the cooler one. So, basically it all depend upon your preference and choice so you should know how to adjust the dimmer appropriately to fulfill your requirements.
However, you should know that all the selfie ring lights aren’t offering the dimmer feature. So, choose your best selfie ring light wisely.
Considering the Light Intensity
The light intensity remains the most important feature the device has to offer. So choose the lumen according to your need as mentioned above. you’ll surely benefit from this feature if you’re working with so many colors.
Are Camera Attachments Really Important?
Obviously, you can’t expect a great result if you are not getting the attachment properly. Therefore, choose a ring light with a super easy mechanism to get attached or detached to the camera lens saving your time and efforts.
Considering the Distance From Light Source

However, you should know the little complications to get the perfect result. Our experience tell us that the distance between the light source and the object is the most essential factor.
To get the best out of your portraits use the continuous ring lights and get more crispier and better results then before.
If you want your videos to be perfectly illuminated, crisped, and clear then try keeping the light two feet in front of you.
In fact, most of the ring lights come with adjusting stand, which allow us to set the light at a proper height and distance to get the perfect result.
In a Nutshell
In short, the most conventional and popular way or you can say even the accurate way to use the ring light around the camera lens. Therefore, allowing to focus capture in the eyes. Howevever, for experimental purposes different techniques can be applied like using it on side or trying other different angles. But I suggest using the more traditional way for better results.
