Lighting for prints on the wall

Discussion in 'Lighting Equipment' started by hearst, Jun 1, 2005.

  1. I belong to a camera club that puts the prints to be judged on a
    large tackboard (I don't know the correct term) on the wall of a
    public building. At present the prints are lighted by a couple of
    bulbs normally used as floodlights in ceiling sockets of rooms. The
    bulbs are in sockets clipped onto portable stands of the kind that
    might be used for cheap photofloods. The light is tungsten and not
    very bright.

    The club can to afford a few hundred dollars to provide better
    lighting, but none of us know what sort of devices we should buy.
    We'd prefer to rent some to try them for the first time.

    Any ideas?
  2. Tracklighting attached to the ceiling in front of the board, with a bunch of 75W adjustable lights.
