But today, all that has changed. I had an electrician install two new ceiling lights which are flush mounted to the ceiling.
I am quite impressed with how much light they give off and as I sit here at my computer, I am amazed that the light is reaching this far.
You can see that I still have the power cords dangling from the ceiling (for power at the work tables) but it's much tidier now without the cables suspending the old lightfitting. But the best part of these new lights is that they are daylight LEDs and they give off the kind of light you get from a bright window.
They will be extremely helpful when I'm photographing my work - I will no longer have to switch off the overhead lights to eliminate the blue cast thrown by the fluorescent lights which confuses the camera so much.
I won't be getting rid of my daylight task lamps any time soon because I'll still need those for close up work but I am grateful for the extra light I now have in the studio.
'Til next time.....
