|5000K T8 Florescent Bulbs|
I had looked all over town a year or so ago for some decent 5000k bulbs and could not find any. So I bought some reasonably priced OTT lights at Costco. Unfortunately I would need to clamp at least 3 of them on my easel to get enough light.
So I put some daylight bulbs in the above mentioned IKEA fixture which worked great, as long as I remember to keep tightening the clamp every now and then. Well my memory is not the best these days.
So after my clients left, I ran out and bought a florescent fixture (I NEVER thought I would buy something so hideous) and the daylight bulbs from Home Depot which they did not carry last time I had checked. Wow, it was like the sun landed in my studio only better. Nice clean light, no glare, no shadows. Now why did I not do this years ago! And really, the fixture is not THAT hideous :)
