Using an LED Ring Light as a Focus Aid

Since using a macro lens & experimenting with lighting, I have found the twin FL36R flashes work well but when the sunlight goes, it becomes a little hard to hold a torch as well to focus so the LED Ring Light came into its own very nicely for night macro photography when spiders start building their webs & other creatures happenings occur, allowing easy focus from the LEDs (they aren't sufficient by themsevles for the longer macro lenses).



This was used for this particular spider in this thread & proved very effective.

Let me know your thoughts.
