      Photography professionals and hobbyists alike use ring lights in their work.

      For macro photography: In macro photography—close-up photography of very small subjects—ring lights help achieve lighting that is evenly balanced in every shot. A ring light mounted on the front of a camera allows a macro photographer to achieve consistent lighting in each new shot.
      For highly detailed close-ups: Ring lights are the best lighting option for close-up photography and videography projects like makeup tutorials. This makes them particularly useful for makeup artists.
      For video production: Cinematographers and videographers often use ring lights in their lighting setup, typically in conjunction with other tools like a softbox, a fill light, or a sidelight. A ring light affixed to the front of a camera is helpful when you’re filming a subject whose head moves around a lot. Provided the subject doesn't stray too far away, they'll always remain in the light.
      For smartphone selfies: If you want to bring out your best facial features, try using a beauty ring light when you take selfies. The ring light effect helps you achieve consistent lighting with a relatively simple lighting setup

      A ring light produces soft, direct light on a subject, minimizing shadows. When you take a photo using a ring light, place the camera lens in the center of the ring; this ensures that your subject is lit evenly from the direction of the camera. Other light sources may produce brilliant lighting on some parts of a subject while leaving others in harsh shadow. By contrast, a ring light that's properly set up on its light stand provides uniformity to the way surfaces are lit.

      Fluorescent ring lights produce a relatively bright white light. (This is intrinsic to fluorescent bulbs, not ring lights specifically.) Most of today's ring lights use LED lights, which typically have a softer effect. Many LED ring lights are dimmable, either via an onboard dimmer or a smartphone app. Dimmable ring lights offer more versatility and greater control of color temperature, and they’re typically the best option for professional photography and videography
