Lights for macro shots-

Photography using ring lights is well-known when it comes to making macro photographs. The ring lights are usually placed into the lens of the camera and allow the photographer to get in close proximity to their subjects and not let the shadows created by the camera impact the lighting. 

Imagine you were using an ordinary lighting setup for macro shots and needed to get extremely in close proximity to your subject. In most cases, the camera's lens will begin to create shadows on your subject. Ring light, because it's placed inside of the lens helps to reduce this problem.
