Let's talk lighting.

Lighting is the effect, practical or aesthetic,  achieved by the arrangement of lights.

Lighting includes the use of both artificial light sources,like lamps and light fixtures, as well as natural illumination by capturing daylight.

What effect do you want to achieve with your lighting?

Things to consider when lighting a space

Direction

Where do you need the light?  What will it bounce off of?

How much will be absorbed or reflected?

Intensity

How much light do you need? 

How many usable lumens does the light provide?  How much wattage are you using?

Colour

What colour temperature do you need?

How will the color temperature affect the colours in your space?

Contrast

Have you thought about contrast?

 How much is necessary for your intent? How much is too much?

Location

How will distance impact the quality and quantity of light?

Do you know where to position your light to create the effect you want and/or need?
