Whether you’re live streaming from home for your Youtube channel or meeting up with your co-workers from across the world you need to present properly and professionally. Your lighting is vital. TheLAShop is here to help you choose the right ring light for your home studio! 


What is a Ring Light and Why is it Used?

A ring light is a circular fluorescent tube or hundreds of surface-mounted LEDs used to highlight a small area. Ring lights are used by many digital content creators, especially in the beauty industry. The soft, shadowless light that it produces often allows the audience to get a detailed view of the content creator. The soft lighting smooths out fine lines and edges as well so the result is often flattering.    

What To Look For When Choosing a Ring Light For YouTube or Zoom Videos  

If you’re planning on streaming live on Youtube or filming a video that will be uploaded to YouTube, then there are a few things you should consider: 


Technically, the larger the ring, the better the lighting. Common ring light sizes include 12, 14, and 18- inches. 


Dimmability is important when it comes to ring lights because it gives you full control over the amount of lighting you want around your subject. For some creators, bright lighting may be a bit too harsh and they prefer to dim it down to protect their eyes

Flexible Neck or Rotatable Ring Head. 

Your ring light’s flexibility is crucial to your decision. A rotating ring light will allow the content creator to position the light above them and angle it down, slightly. You want your ring light to have as much flexibility as possible.

You don’t need an entire studio to record a professional live stream. You can do so with just your smartphone and the right ring light. When browsing through our ring lights, remember to consider: 

Ring Light Stand.

Your ring light stand is very important when choosing your ring light! Depending on the type of videos you’re choosing, you may want a ring light stand that is height adjustable. A ring light stand should be sturdy so consider a ring light tripod. A ring light tripod can provide a strong stance against wind in case you are filming outside.   


Your ring light stand or ring light tripod should have as much flexibility as possible. 

Color Changing Ring Light.

Some ring light stands and ring light tripods offer color changing options. These color changing ring lights give the content creator creative options! These are particularly useful for makeup artists and fantasy creators. Multi color ring lights can bring a professional look to your YouTube stream. 


All of your ring lights should be able to be dimmable. The option allows you to control the mood of your video.
