Helpful tips for taking selfies - The Gigi Cosmetics - Selfie Ring Light
Hi There..... Is taking selfies something you like to do? Would you like to learn more about using a selfie ring light? Are you in the dark about what equipment you could use to enhance your selfies?
If you are an influencer, taking selfies is something you probably do more often. Let's hope you are not addicted to it. And yes, there is such a thing as being addicted to taking selfies. 😎
I read on nbcnews that the Nottingham Trent University study established the Selfitis Behavior Scale as an instrument for assessing Selfie addiction. Borderline: Taking at least 3 selfies a day without posting them on social media. Acute: Taking and posting (on social media) at least 3 selfies a day. Chronic: Unable to resist the urge to take selfies “around the clock” and post at least 6 of those photos per day. 😲
Go on, tell me, how many do you post? Perhaps you are exactly like I said, somewhat in the dark about what equipment to use. I wonder if that's a good or a bad thing? What if I tell you more about this selfie ring light? Will you hold me responsible for your addiction, afterward? 😁
I found a great quote by Svetlana Alexievich to help me solve this puzzle. Showing just the dark side doesn't always work. The important thing is to show what we can learn from dark things, what good we find there. 😊
As a kid, I was so afraid of the dark. Both my sisters knew that too well, and they made good use of it when playing hide and seek in the house. They often hid in the basement, because they knew I wouldn't come searching for them down there. 😢
Aha, for them, it was a good thing. Not that great for me, though. Although, from time to time I gathered all my courage and still went in that basement. This way I gradually overcame my fear. Ok, not completely, but still. 😄
That means there must be truth in this quote, and I can go on with my blog post about this Selfie Ring Light, I received from The Gigi Cosmetics in return for my honest opinion. 😍
The package contained the ring light with a power cord with a switch that ends in a USB plug, and it also contained a rotation head. The light diameter is 16 cm (6 inches). It has 3 adjustable color temperatures and 10 brightness options for each temperature mode.
The ring light is powered by USB, which is perfectly compatible with various devices like a PC, laptop, and power bank, allowing you to have a comfortable experience during use.
The buttons on the power cord are used to easily turn the power on and off and switch to the lighting mode and brightness level you need.
It will come in handy whenever you need extra light with multi-functions. It is light and compact, so you can take it anywhere you want. Connect it to a tripod to free your hands for study, live stream, makeup, taking photos, making videos, selfies.
I tried it out in one of the darkest rooms in our house. If you plug it in, the on/off switch lights up blue, which I found super handy. The different colors and brightness levels make it easy to get the right mood you want for your picture or film. To show you, I made a series of pictures.
The first one was without the light, and then gradually turning it to a brighter level.
Do you know how hard it is to hold your head in the same position and pull the same face each time. 😏
I wanted to show you the difference in how the light reflects on different angles of your face. There is already a considerable difference, with or without the light. I also placed my number one next to the 10 again, so that you can see that there is a significant difference between the first and the last picture.
There are the 3 color temperatures you can play with. I am only showing them on the brightest levels, but for each color, you can also adjust the brightness 10 times.
The left picture is the white light. In the middle, I switched to a warmer hue. Then the picture on the right is a cooler hue. If you can count, you know that there are 30 different levels on this ring light, so enough to play with. 😀
It may not have a light stand or a tripod, but why would you buy those if you already have them, and that makes this light very affordable. 😍
The next thing I need now is a Bluetooth selfie clicker so that I can take splendid pictures without having to bother someone else. 😄
