Student working on a research project.

Incandescent/LED Comparative Study

Using incandescent stage fixtures and light emitting diodes independently, student researchers work to recreate the lighting rendered by master fine artists Vermeer, Caravaggio, and Hopper. The exercise tests the diodes ability to create naturalistic lighting images in production. The results will be documented and a report weighing energy efficiency and aesthetic potential will draw conclusions as to which lighting gear is most appropriate for dramatic lighting applications.
