Ring lights

By Karuma1970
Chameleon and frog

Before I went on my trip to Madagascar I knew I might want to take photos at night of small animals. Ring flashes are both expensive and should not be used with animals anyway. I found an LED ring light that fitted onto the lenses of the camera and was light balanced for photography. It worked brilliantly. Think having a third arm and pointing a torch onto where you want to photograph. It cost about 30.
