Need a daylight equivalent lighting
source to take some photographs but a flash is too bright or has
other exposure issues.
An inexpensive tool would be the purchase of a couple of DAYLIGHT
rated fluorescent light bulbs and some swing arm lamps or simple
reflector clamp lamps. We have found that the 100 watt bulbs tend
to be the friendly for the many different applications we have
The pair of bulbs will cost less than $12 a
pair. They are similar to the
output of a 100 watt light
bulb but have the Kelvin rating
of 6500K which is nearly the
same as a daylight source. They produce low heat or temperature
as compared to the very expensive incandescent style light bulbs.
Plus the fluorescent bulbs have a greater life span. Just
remember that the bulbs do
have some mercury in the manufacturing
process so they must be properly disposed of when they finally
do burn out.
These bulbs can be purchased at most hardware stores.
