What about if you coat the inside of the diy ring light with silver reflective tape to make it brighter?

iamsamantics says:

Hey Miss Shameless, I wanted to find out about the HUGE lightbulb you use with your umbrella lighting, whether that comes with the umbrella kit or if it was purchased separately?

Midwest Kandi says:

I need help: when I film my vids they look great on my camera. I can see the dimensions and different colors in my makeup. Uploading takes on a different vibe YUCK! The colors are not distinctive.

BrinkingOutLoud says:

If you are a beginner YouTuber, like myself, on a budget! Which device/devices give you better lighting by itself? A ring, umbrella lights or soft box lighting? I’ve found that I don’t always get a chance to catch the daylight!
