Caleb Ward

Make your subject’s eyes POP with this DIY ring light video tutorial.

If you want to shoot a stylized music or fashion video, then a ring light might be for you. Instead of a small bright spot in your model’s eyes, a ring light will produce a really cool circular effect that will make your subject’s eyes really pop.

Good ring lights will run you about $200 if you buy them off of B&H, so if you’re looking to save some money, use this video tutorial by Tom Antos on how to create your own DIY ring light.

This video was first created by Tom Antos and shared on his Vimeo channel. Thanks for sharing, Tom!
