If you've been experimenting with macro and closeup photography and been hesitant to shell out for an expensive ring flash, this cheap and simple ring light setup is worth checking out.
Most of the time DIY LED camera hacks involve circuit boards, soldering, and lots of electronic DIY know how. We love this hack for its simplicity. The two LED rings seen in the picture above are actually meant to be put on car head lamps by car modders. You can pick them up for under $US5 each and the only wiring you'll have to do is to simply wire them to a switch clipped onto a 9v battery. Check out the sample image below, the image on the left is from the ring flash and the image on the right is from the LED ring light.
Check out the link below for more photos and a build guide that details how to select the right LED rings for your camera and attaching them to an inexpensive lens hood. Have a favourite camera hack you want to share? Let's hear about it in the comments.
