Lights and light bulbs are mainly chosen based on their light intensity or color temperature. There are many types of lights on the market. For creative professions, color fidelity is very important. If you haven’t paid much attention to color fidelity until now, you may be surprised to learn that there is a visible difference between different lights and how people and objects look under them.
Photographers well-versed in photography terminology are certainly familiar with the term white balance. However, white balance is not the only factor to consider when discussing light. You can also measure how well a light source displays different colors compared to natural light. This type of measurement is useful for photography as well as other color work, whether it’s painting or putting on makeup.
