Whether for recreational or professional purposes, quality lighting is vital for live streaming or vlogging. Photo and video content creators widely consider ring lights as “go-to” solutions for great reasons:

  • Ring lights provide a relatively large light source for a single subject. This helps to create softer, more flattering light across the subject’s face.
  • When positioned straight on, the wide surface area (without a center hotspot) virtually eliminates wrinkles, fine lines, and under-eye shadows.
  • Bi-color capable lights allow users to dial into a color temperature to best complement their complexion or coordinate with warm ambient room lighting.
  • LED lights are ultra long-lasting, run much cooler than conventional steady lights, and require little to no maintenance.
