Photos taken of fabric samples at 4 different places throughout town that use different kinds of lighting. Photos used to compare color and texture appearance in each lighting scenario. @Jackson Library March 12, 2009 Lighting: Fluorescent & Natural Reaction: Colors seem faded and very light
@ my house March 3, 2009 Lighting: CFL bulbs Reaction: colors seem dull compared to other forms of lighting
@ Harris Teeter March 3, 2009 Lighting: Fluorescent Reaction: Colors seem very bold and rich
@ Barnes & Noble March 10, 2009 Lighting: Incandescent Reaction: Colors seem very bright and lively
(Pay no attention to the time/date, my camera is a time machine)
Photos taken at 3 different places around town: a restaurant, a retail store, and an art museum. Photos used to compare the lighting quality, type, and patterns.
@ Target February 13, 2009 Lighting: Fluorescent Reactions: Smooth, uniform lighting throughout the space is key for retail stores that sell a variety of products. Recommendations: small, subtle brightness of light directed toward key products
@ Ham's on Friendly, February 15, 2009 Lighting: Incandescent, LED, and Natural Reactions: the mixture of so much light is distracting. Too much light on one side and not enough on the other Recommendations: Lower the light fixtures above the tables to create a more intimate space, control the glare from the windows while still letting the natural light flow in.
@ Weatherspoon Art Museum, February 23, 2009 Lighting: Incandescent task lighting Reactions: creates the dynamic focus on each piece that is necessary in a museum Recommendations: none. light patterns are simple and correct for the space
