Originally invented for use in dental photography, the ring light flash has become quite popular in mainstream photography. The ring light flash is circular and large enough for the camera lens to fit through the center.
Ring lights are especially useful for providing even illumination of the subject and are particularly effective in portrait photography, macro photography and fashion photography.
As a lighting technique, ring lights are also used as fill light for illuminating shadows when used in conjunction with other lighting options.
