How far away should a ring light be?

The ideal distance between a subject and a ring light can vary depending on the size of the light, the power of the bulbs, and the effect you want to achieve. As a general rule, it is recommended to position the ring light as close to the subject as possible without creating harsh shadows or causing discomfort to the subject's eyes.

If you are using a larger ring light, you may need to position it further away from the subject to achieve the desired lighting effect. Similarly, if you are using a more powerful ring light, you may need to adjust the distance to avoid overexposing your subject.

As a starting point, you can position the ring light about 2-3 feet away from your subject and adjust the distance as needed based on your specific setup and lighting requirements.
