    Hello,

    Since I bought big ring lamp in my home for my shoots of myself, I cannot go out and take photos without extra lights. I want to purchase something like on amazon the brand Neewer has, it cost about 50-60 pounds. I found many videos on youtube that recommend evenlight for 20-30dollars. I am lost... Which light will lighten me well when I am standing within 5-7 meters from camera. I want ring lights cause of the beauty effect is has on the skin. Give me recommendation, something from Amazon! I want similar effect like at home.
    Thanks!

    I own Canon 750D

    Those are both meant primarily for macro work and not really suitable for lighting people. I suspect what you're looking for is more like a beauty dish.
    (Random video, haven't watched it, posted only to illustrate a beauty dish)

    Thank for reply.
    No, I don’t want beauty dish cause I won’t have electricity power outside. I want something to mouth on camera on the lens. Something powerfull that works on battery or camera’s power.
    ... Or is their easy and affordable way to have power connector and connect normal ring lamp with stand that normally powers to the wall? That would be cool!
    I’m total neewbie, I know such a thing exists but is it affordable and lightweight, easy to use? Night shoots seems so tempting...

    I got it, but ont the description it says also for portraits. Of course it’s not good.

    This one you linked, yes that is good. Also price wise.
    What about the speed light? Can you also recommend something on budget, what to look for in good speedlight?

    I found the neewer, has good review, pro photographers are amazed for this price 29.99£:
    Neewer® TT560 Flash Speedlite for Canon Nikon Sony Panasonic Olympus Fujifilm Pentax Sigma Minolta Leica and Other SLR Digital SLR Film SLR Cameras and Digital Cameras with single-contact Hot Shoe https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004K689EO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_XLwkAbRG3FCX4

    I will buy this one or which you recommended. Anyways, thank you. I will finally take photos outside.
    I have plenty of ideas like half naked photos in snow, in lingerie on bench during rain, etc. The soft ring box will great to soften the skin. Really cool and affordable!
