Nothing beats great lighting. If you want to take your iPhone photography to the next level, and you don't have access to perfect sunlight 24/7 (and most of us don't), you're going to want to look into lighting accessories.

They can brighten up your Instagram scenes, make your Snapchat selfies shine, and otherwise give your iPhoneography a more professional glow. Here are our current favorites!

Let there be light!

Taousa universal fill-in light

Using a similar design to that of external iPhone lenses, the Taousa universal fill-light works by simply clamping onto your phone in order to brighten up all your iPhoneography. The LED light is small, easy to carry, and works perfectly for phone photography and selfies. The light has 3 brightness levels, which can be easily adjusted, meaning you're in full control of how much light you let into your pictures.

If you light it then you should have put a case on it...

LuMee Duo iPhone case

While not technically an external light (think of it as more of a selfie-specific, super light), the LuMee is the first iPhone case that lets you carry around a powerful set of LED lights without any extra little pieces!

Developed by a professional photographer, the LuMee has LED lighting on both the right and left sides of the case as well as the back and the front, meaning you can light your selfies perfectly. The lights on the back are perfect for snapping product shots or lighting up an environment for a group shot.
