Have you ever wondered how most of the beauty photographs and videos that you have seen lately are well lit and of high quality? Well, if you thought that the reason behind this is because they are using a very expensive type of camera then you are definitely wrong. Most of these photographers and video creators are able to produce these high-quality videos and photographs simply because they use a piece of unique lighting equipment called the ring light.
Creating the right lighting environment is achievable and you don't need to be an expert in lighting or makeup. If you're a beauty blogger/vlogger, a make up artist or a photographer it is a good idea to get the selfie ring light and learn some knowledge about colour temperature of light.
Typically, a ring light is an easy-to-use multipurpose lighting tool that enables users to obtain a source of uniform light that comes directly from the point of view of their cameras. This lighting device is usually made from a single circular fluorescent bulb or several connected small LED lights that form the shape of a circle.
When we choose a selfie ring light, it can be found that some selfie ring light will be advertised color temperature. This will tell you how warm or cool the color of the light is.
Light appearance is measured in temperature using the Kelvin scale. Unlike the weather outdoors lower color temperatures (2700K) indicate ‘warmer’ colors of orange and yellow, and higher color temperatures (6500K) indicate cooler colors like blue and white.
Know about Color Temperatures
2700K-3000K – This is the warm or soft white range, best suited for areas in the home where you want to relax or entertain.
3500K-4500K – This is more a neutral white light range, giving a balance between warm and soft color light.
Over 5000K – Generally referred to as daylight and best suited for use in offices, workshops, bathrooms or other areas where high detail visibility is important. It can also help energize you in the morning.
2700-3000K is a soft warm light and suitable if you want a healthy glow photography without make-up application. 3500K-4100K is a neutral white light and its good for photography. 5000K-6000K is recommended for make up application and photography as it is not too warm or too cool.
