Use Selfie Sticks And Ring Lights to take your story to the next level!
A selfie stick is used to take photographs or video by positioning a digital camera device, typically a smartphone, beyond the normal range of the arm.
Why are social media influencers using a phone selfie ring light? The simple answer is that it gives a beautiful, flattering and professional lighting setup for both images and video shot on a phone camera.
Advances in technology mean that the photos from bloggers and social media influencers are better than ever before, and this means that the bar is being raised constantly in picture quality.
It’s not enough these days to simply use natural light or your phone camera flash to create images that are both eye-catching and professional-looking – you need to follow the lead and start using lighting.
Why should you consider a ring light? Because, much like a traditional DSLR ring flash, it gives you beautiful, evenly lit images on your mobile phone without any harsh shadows or dark areas, which have always been a problem with built-in mobile phone camera flashes.

4 Ways to Use a Ring Light
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.
