If you're reading this right now, there's a good chance that you landed on our website in need of some awesome camera equipment for your next project, read our last blog post about how to use a ring light, and decided it was time you learned more about the famed ring light for yourself.
You've come to the right place.
Here at WyzePhoto, we consider ourselves connoisseurs of all things photography. Perhaps our love for photography has something to do with our obsession with social media, or perhaps it comes from the collective decade of time we've spent poring over how to take great pictures.
Either way, there's one thing that holds true when it comes to social media, photography, influencing, and anything else that involves creating great visual content. That one thing is the importance of the ring light.
Aren't all lights created equal?
Most certainly not! In a creative medium like social media, the type of lighting you have at your disposal can determine the quality of your photos, the locations you can shoot in, and even the clothes you or your subjects can wear. If you have the good fortune of a limitless budget with which you can buy virtually any light you need, then the ring light (while certainly still a viable option) may not be your first choice. But, if you're like most of us, and you don't have that limitless budget, then a ring light can function as a very effective all-around lighting tool that can help you get those perfect shots nearly every time.
The power and versatility of the ring light stems from the way it lights its subjects. Unlike many other conventional light tools that light directly or indirectly, the ring light actually frames its subjects (hence the name ring light) with soft light that prevents shadows and doesn't wash out their features.
So, how can a ring light help me with my shoot?
The wonderful thing about the ring light (among many other wonderful qualities) is that it's a tool that comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. This makes it the perfect light for any sort of photographer, and, by default any sort of shoot. Whether you're outside or inside, shooting several subjects or just one, with the ring light, shots always look crisper, cleaner, and more professional.
And we're not just saying this stuff. The ring light continues to be our top selling product, and customers can't get enough of how easy it makes it to set up a great looking shoot in half the time and with even less budget!
