I wanted a ring light for the nice looking "catch light" effect on the subject's eye. You need to get the light close to the subject and zoom in close to their face. I uploaded an image I took of myself with the ring light and the camera was about a foot in front of me. I think this light will be great for close-up portraits for girls. I think it gives that "glam shot" look. I am not sure if this will be popular with male subjects though. The inner dimensions is listed at 15 inches. This is bigger than I thought. I was very close to getting the 18 inch Ring light from a different company, but I would have to pay close to $100 more for that. I think the size of this ring light is good enough for me.
Ive had this light for a few months and it is really nice. The only downside to it is that it isn't dimmable but im not taking a star away bc it clearly states that it isnt. Thats something you would know before you purchased. I use one or two white t shirts to dim and diffuse the lights for my youtube videos and it works like a charm.
This light works like a charm. Bright and lasting. It DOES get hot to the touch with extended usage so for those who do large wedding parties like me, be careful not to stand too close to it because I've burnt myself a few times.
I love this light it does what its supposed to and lights my face perfectly. Its not dimable but I don't really care about that. I use this for my youtube videos with my nikon d3500 dslr camera I'm happy ...check out my youtube channel @makeup voyager leigh
