RING LIGHT DIY // Affordable Video Lighting


Hey everybody, I hope you like this DIY. It’s for any of you who are lusting over the famous diva ring light but don’t have the money to fish out. This is a great alternative for the time being. I hope you found it helpful
I found this to be very helpful in preventing the very harsh glare that using a normal clamp light. The light shines through a lot softer this way.
Make sure to use a daylight bulb for more of a natural light look.

Have the lamp at least 4-5 feet away from you so it looks softer.
