If you’re a beauty blogger, you know the importance of good lighting to take product shots, and makeup swatches. The reality is, you can’t rely on natural daylight most of the time. It just doesn’t work out! I need to be able to take photos anytime of the day or night, light or dark, good or bad weather. I first learned about OttLite products from my Mom, who is an avid crafter. There really is no comparison to the dramatic lighting difference OttLite provides with its natural daylight LED.
OttLite has a fantastic selection of feature rich LED desk and floor lamps that help you see details clearly, and colors accurately. Some lamps have a magnifier, or USB charging port. Talk about a multi tasker! Dr. John Ott, the father of time lapse photography, is the creator of the OttLite. The LED lamps are specially designed to reduce eyestrain and glare, allowing you to do what you love longer.
The design I chose is the Natural Daylight LED Flex Lamp. I chose this lightweight and portable model for its ease of use. It’s got a slim and compact look that is perfect for staging beauty blog photos. My OttLite has 3 light settings, which I love.
My Ottlite lamp has a flexible neck, allowing for lighting from all angles. I have never been able to light all areas with such ease.
I’ve been using it for product shots and swatches and also to apply my makeup. My beauty room/office is not bright enough to apply my makeup without a light. The OttLite provides the perfect natural lighting for makeup application.
The photos above are unedited (other than cropping), and were taken at the same time. The only difference is the OttLite. It’s such a difference! Read on for a coupon code and a giveaway to win your own OttLite!
