Nifty DIY Ring Light

By Anthony Thurston on August 10th 2013

DigitalRev is known for doing some pretty interesting things on their YouTube channel. In one of their latest episodes they tasked a professional photographer with building a DIY ring light to use on a model who would be showing up in 2 hours.

Amazingly the design that he came up with is actually pretty perfect, and while not ideal for all situations, it works pretty well for a DIY light build. Basically they destroyed a fan, some bathroom lights and built a DIY power-box to power the thing. Then they added a  mount making it compatible with a lightstand or tripod.   Check out the video below, its a pretty neat setup honestly.
