Using LED Ring Light For Various Purpose

In the year 1952, a man named Lester A. Dine invented the ring light, it was invented for use in dental photography. There is a circular opening which fits around the lens or the source protection glass. By Surrounding the lens or the cover glass, an even distribution of light with less shadows obtained. 

This is very useful in many applications, especially when taking pictures of small objects. A typical light ring consists of two main  units, the power unit and the light source unit. The power unit may be a battery or a power supply. The light source unit is a group of circular small lights surrounding the light lens. Some of them have a diffuser or a lamp focus.

LED (Light Emitting Diode) is a semiconductor light. It works by recombination of electrons with the electron holes in the device releasing energy in the form of photons (light illumination). The first LEDs emitted red light with low intensity, but as technology progressed, they offered many different colors of high intensity light. For example, red, blue, yellow and green orange.

A LED ring light combines the Light Emitting Diode idea with the ring idea to form a very useful illumination tool. This type of light is widely used in the macro photograph, microscope torch light and corresponding plant culture lighting.
