One of the features that caught my attention is the way the translucent plastic bends down towards the lens.  This provides better rap around light when working with macro photography.  Many of the ring lights I have used only have the light open on the front.

Dot-Line 60 LED Ring Light Review

Last fall I was at my local camera store when I saw the Dot-Line LED ring light.  I was not sure how I felt about the idea of an LED light.  I had heard mixed reviews about LED lights in general.  Specifically a friend who is a DP (Director Of Photography) for video work told […]
