I normally like natural light for photographing medals and the like. I use professional ring lights at work that are camera-mounted, but this small ring light idea intrigued me, so I just went and bought one.
This is my first test photo, with no adjustment, and I like the results. I may find a dimmer to put the light on, in order to take the intensity down. The light was three inches from the medal, and the camera (a Canon SD1000 on Auto settings, in macro) had it's lens positioned about two inches higher.


I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.....
