The use of catch lights can completely transform your video or photos by showcasing the stylized look that this type of lighting can create. We’re using the Diva Ring Light to demonstrate how a simple lighting solution like a beauty light can give you professional results. While LED lights tend to be very directional and can cast harsh shadows when used in close up lighting situations, a fluorescent ring provides a very broad even diffusion of light. It’s also very helpful that this light generates almost no heat, so it’s safe to bring in close to your subjects. The benefit of this sort of flat, soft lighting is very soft shadows, and the elimination of almost all skin imperfections. Makeup colors pops and the face ends up having a fresh, clean, even look. Another highly sought after benefit of using a ring light is the catch lights that are reflected in the eyes of the subject. The small reflection gives the eyes a sparkle and the image a very distinct look. For this we suggest going with the largest 18″ model.
A Ring Light is typically mounted so it surrounds the lens of the camera. By placing your ring light on the same axis as your lens, you’ll evenly light your subject as we did in our video (above). Ring lights are also incredibly helpful for taking very clean and simple product photos. We’ve used the 18 inch as our main front light source and pairing it with a simple hair light (the 12 inch Diva Ring Light) in the back. The Diva Ring Light consists of a 5400k fluorescent tube rated at 65 watts fixed in circular housing. There are two methods to mounting this ring light, a 1/4 20 flexible gooseneck for light stands or a clamp which can be used on light stands and on the neck of your tripod. The beauty lighting solution is well worth the price if you’re shooting portrait photography, stylized videos or want to add an easy tool to your production kit for professional results. The Diva Ring Light comes in either a 12 or an 18 inch diameter ring all found at the store (click here).
