Default Day light bulb for perfect picture?

How do you take picture of products at home? Home made light box (we'll cover this topic in another thread) plus day light bulb?

What kind of daylight bulb? The one purchased from Walmart or Homedepot ('the swirl bulb'). Those bulbs are not ideal daylight bulb. Your picture will not have WHITE background.

Here is the Color temperature hue scale.




Real daylight color temprature is between 5000-5600K. So you need to purchase light bulb designed for studio--daylight fluorescent bulb with color temprature between 5000-5600K. The color temprature must be marked on the bulb.

The price of the bulb is between $5-$29 each, depends on the brand. Search eBay or Amazon.com you'll find one.

I bought a lighting kit on eBay for $57 plus shipping. item#280119718603. I got the defect parts and have to return to exchange.

You can use 2 reading lamps but need to purchase day light bulbs.

Bulbs used in continuous lighting:
1. tungsten bulb--old technology, coloring temperature is 3200K, it turns your pictures yellow. Plus it's very hot.
2. New fluorescent bulb (swirl bulb 5000k-5600k, true daylight)--new technology. Very cool because 25W fluorescent bulb is as light as 100W tungsten bulb. So you can use it on normal reading lamp.

I went to Wal-Mart tonight just to see if they had any daylight bulbs and I scored!! They had several to choose from, all fluorescent CFL. The one I got was a 6500K; they were out of the 5500K so I thought I'd try this one. If I get too much blue coloring I'll take it back when they restock the 5500K ones. I paid $6 something for two, can't beat that.

Just wanted to add this incase others are wondering like I was. If your Wal-Mart doesn't carry them let me know and I can get the phone number for the home office and just tell them you want them stockd in your store and they will. Hope this helps someone.
