Ring light photoshoot

In general, to shoot a satisfactory picture, the most important thing is to control the exposure of the picture.

Therefore, the picture should neither be too bright to cause overexposure, nor too dark to cause underexposure.

In actual shooting, we need to adjust the brightness, angle and distance of the ring lamp from the subject, as well as the settings of the mobile phone or camera to affect the exposure of the picture.

After you make sure the settings of your phone and camera, you can adjust the ring light.

When the ring lamp is close to the person or subject, the light will be hard, and the main body is bright and the background is dark.

When the distance between the ring lamp and the person or subject is moderate, the light will be more natural, and the main body is bright and the background is dark, but the contrast is relatively low.

When the ring lamp is far away from the person or subject, the light will be softer.

By adjusting the brightness, position and angle of the ring lamp, you can quickly master the method of using light.
Not only for ring lamps, this method is applicable to photography using any light source.
