DIY: Ring Light Tutorial

Hey ya’ll! I have been working on starting my youtube channel back up and I have finally posted my first video in 4 years! **clap hands** I decided to take my viewers with me through my journey of getting it up and running. The first thing I wanted was a ring light so I wanted to take a shot at DIY. I actually made two but the first one was based on the led rope light method that is all over youtube. That light wasn’t as bright as I wanted it to be. I went to my “drawing board” and came up with this method. Tell me what you think!


This is how I have it set up. I used photography equipment that I already had. It’s a reflector holder kit. If you don’t have one, I suggest adding it to your equipment list. A reflector with a stand and swivel holder bracket are great investments for photography and video.
