Photography with the Ilios Ring Light

Ring lights are versatile tools that have the power to bring studio quality lighting to your living room. As our lives become more and more digital, content creation is taking off in new and inventive ways and the need for accessible and affordable equipment has skyrocketed with it. The ring light has transformed industries from cosmetics to entertainment and everything in between. With our new Beauty Ring Light, we’re taking things up a notch.

Social media provides photographers, creators and artists with a platform to showcase their work to a community of millions. However, making the most of content creation requires creativity, planning and the right equipment. Ever come across a grid so flawless it looks professionally managed? Usually, the star of the show isn’t a behind the scenes social media manager, but a great posting calendar and a top tier ring light.

The proof is in the lighting

Ring lights are powerful, illuminating and compact, making them the perfect tools for both professional photographers and at-home content creators. A high quality ring light can provide a glow that is to die for and a flawless finish (photoshop is a thing of the past). 

Ring lights are unique from traditional studio lighting because the camera is placed at the center of the ring, resulting in a glowing halo with 360° coverage. Halo lighting minimizes shadows and awkward angles, enhances natural planes and invigorates color. You no longer need bulky cameras and thousands of dollars in equipment to capture the perfect shot; a smartphone and a good angle will do the trick.

Nail down your technique

While traditional photography requires us to hold our cameras/ phones and maneuver the right angles with one arm, ring light photos are designed to be hands-free. A ring light makes photography effortless; your camera is held within the halo of light and your camera clicks away, directed either by a timer or remote. In an instant, you’re photographer, director and model rolled into one.

So, how do you get the perfect shot? Practice, practice, practice. Professional photographers know that a single shoot might produce hundreds of shots, of which only a handful might be usable. If you’re doing it yourself, be patient and give yourself lots to work with. New angles, positions, locations and accessories will add interest to your photos and help you snap the perfect pic.

The Beauty Ring is an essential tool for anyone looking to elevate their photography game. If you’re a beauty guru or makeup artist, it helps capture stunning, precise images of your work. For photographers, professional or amateur, the ring light makes studio grade lighting accessible from anywhere. And for Influences, Tik Tok stars and Youtubers, the ring light guarantees flawless camera work and a dazzling final product. The Ilios Beauty Ring is a must-have for the best lighting - check it out today and see the difference.
