If you take a look at the gallery option on your average smartphone, there is one thing you are sure to find – lots of selfies. Whether these are funny candid shots, pictures with your loved ones, or shots you’ve kept when you are trying out new make up or outfits, our phones are just littered with these personal memories.
I must admit I love a good selfie, but I am not always the best at taking them. Cutting off the top of heads or obscuring the face are all part of the experience for me, although this has been helped in some part by the selfie stick I received as a gift a few years ago. Part of the fun of selfies are that they are not perfect photography, you don’t need to be David Bailey to take one, anyone can take a selfie! But advances in our smartphone technology, and also the rise of digital cameras that can be used with tripods for more professional shots mean that we can now take selfies that are beautifully light and framed, with our image spaced perfectly. In addition, with the rise of the online vloggers and influencers on TikTok and YouTube, we can also make our videos appear to have a far more professional finish.
A few professional yet affordable tools certainly help this. Tonor have created the fabulous Ring Light. This is a selfie ring light with a tripod stand that can be used to backlight your photos and videos. The light is dimmable and features 3 colour modes (cold, warm, natural) along with 10 brightness levels. This means you can get exactly the right sort of light for your photo or film, from bright and busy, to soft and glowing. The Ring Light is suitable for most smartphones and could also be great for zoom calls where you want to make a good impression – maybe a zoom party, or even a zoom date!
The light is easy to use, and is portable, so you can use this on location as well as from home. It is also very flattering, for those days when you need a little extra help that nature cannot provide…
This is a great gadget that you can use to improve the quality of your selfies and videos.
