I had a feeling they were tungsten-ish , having used them on work sites in the past, but as you say, quite easily adjustable with white balance. I also just watched the bottle of wine with glass, and the 'pure' glass photography, both of which were eye opening to be honest - suffice to say, I'm now subscribed Smile

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks so much ,there's a lot more lessons coming , for all levels, if there's anything you would like me to do one on then just ask, if I am able and equipped to do it I will. They're great fun to do.

Thanks Phill, this is a great video and really shows how easy it can be to start off well.
I've used a 125w (eq 625w) Daylight 5400K bulb like these - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-125w-eq-625w-Daylight-Bulb-Photography-5400K-bulbs-/280676503949?pt=UK_Light_Bulbs&hash=item41599f918d before and it was almost too bright to work with unless rigged up in a softbox.
I look forward to you next vids Smile

Thanks Stuart ,They work very well with tracing paper hung in front of them , I use a roll 1m wide sometimes I put 2 or 3 thicknesses , it's best around 2 ft away from the lamp. I've got studio flash but for still life I'm using more and more continuous light. Maybe my eyes are getting as dim as my brain Sad

Well explained Phil should help to dispel a lot of miss info about studio lighting
