If you’ve been following me on Social Media you’ll know that I recently entered a photography competition on Twitter. It was being hosted by Kitmapper – (a peer to peer rental network for film, sound and AV hire).
The brief was “Spreading love and kindness” a photograph portraying love and kindness. As soon as I saw what was requested I knew I had the perfect shot.
I wasn’t holding out much hope on actually winning but I waited patiently for the day to come along when the winner to be announced…It was me, I won! The prize was a fabulous Ring Light from Neewer, complete with stand, plus white and orange diffusers.
My light. It’s an 18″ diameter and is a fluorescent tube light in the shape of a ring which is dimmable.
It is 600w. Colour temperature is 5500k. It has an attachment so you can place your camera to sit within the light (as seen in the first photo). The ring can be tilted so that you can hover it over your set up.
I absolutely love the way the light eliminates shadow and just brightens up the image. It’s brilliant for product shots, I find.
If I ever decide to get into ‘vlogging’ this light will prove invaluable for that as it’s often difficult to get the lighting just right for video.
Included with the light is a sturdy carry case where you can also store the diffusers.

Finally, a really big thank you to Kitmapper for my Ring Light… I love it!
