Funny thing happened at work
« on: November 24, 2004, 09:48:20 am »
For those that don't know I work PT at Home Depot - Electrical Dept.  Anyways I had an artist in last night looking for a floor lamp to aid in lighting.  We found one, that was the easy part.  Then I said "the bulbs are over in this aisle....."  and wondered is there a certain bulb that he should use?  Hmmmmm......well he took the Reveal bulbs made by GE.

What I would like to know is what do you artists use for lighting and is there a special type of bulb you use?

I usually use clear bulbs, but next time I'm thinking about getting some of the "reveal" ones. The problem is that they're expensive.
In art supply stores and catalogs, there are these "true light" bulbs, which are super expensive.

Compact flourescent. The closer to 5200K in color temp, the more accurate the colors.

Right now the best I have is a halogen spotlight. It's very harsh, but if I shine it on my white ceiling, the indirect light is okay. Like Sskessa, I would love to have something like a Reveal or other "daylight" lamp, but that will have to wait for a while.
