In this tutorial, we learn how to convert a halogen lamp into a makeshift ring light. Instead of pointing this light straight at the person you are photographing, you can use a ring light to make the halogen light less harsh. The prices for ring lights are very expensive, so making this yourself can save you a lot of money. First, go out and buy a round metal mesh object wherever you can find one. You will also need tin foil, a plastic cup, and wire cutters. First, set the metal bowl on top of the halogen and use the wire cutters to cut the shape of the bulb out. Once it fits, tape the cup inside the bowl and coat it in foil. After this, you will have a ring light that is easier to look at and much cheaper!
