In this video tutorial, we show you a fun studio lighting technique using the Ring Light for portraits and glamour photography. It  is perfect for models  & high school seniors who want a unique high fashion magazine look.

Typically, the photographers goal is to create a three dimensional look through the use of various studio lighting techniques.

The ring light breaks these rules – which is often the reason why it it popular.

A  ring light gives a unique look, because all light is coming from the front, imparting a virtually shadowless look onto the front of your subject, while even shadows show around the edges of any three-dimensional surface.

This look is possible in part because the camera lens sets in the very middle of the light source.   See Ring Light on White Lightning’s Website
