LED Ring Light/Macro Camera Flashes

LED Ring Light Macro Camera Flashes

A TTL LED ring light macro camera flash can be a good alternative to many other types of camera flash exposure compensation, especially for macro, medical and fashion photography, depending on your subject and your needs.

Construction

An LED ring flash usually consists of a power and control unit mounted on a hot shoe with a circular flash unit that is mounted on the front of a lens. Light is generated by multiple LEDs, and the number of LEDs can vary based on the type and quality of the ring flash. Power to the ring flash is typically supplied by batteries in the shoe-mounted unit, and the ring flash is supplied with power by cables that also convey control signals. Larger ring flashes may have an external battery or line power supply.

Applications

LED camera ring flashes are a great option for close-up (macro) photography, medical and dental photography and some types of fashion photography. Ring flashes are popular for these types of photography because the subject is very close to the camera, the distance of the flash from the optical axis becomes significant, which softens shadows as the light encounters the subject from many angles. Ring flashes are popular in portrait photography because they soften shadows created by other off-axis lights.

Brands

There are many different brands that produce LED ring light flashes. Popular and well-known brands include Nikon, Canon and Neewer, though smaller and generic branded LED ring light flash products can also be found.

Features

Some LED ring flashes will have special features that can enhance the quality of your photography when using the ring flash. For example, some LED ring flashes come with focusing lenses that result in the ideal light distribution depending on the distance from the subject.
