My photo bulbs just burned out. I've been running around sanding and pricing pots for the big show this weekend and finally have just settled down to set up my photo booth display to take shots of my best pots, and then my new bulbs just burned out. Now there's only one of them working left, and I usually use three, but it could be just minutes before I lose the last one. I live out in the middle of nowhere and I just bought two of these in Asheville the other day. At the time, they were the last two at the photo store in Asheville, too. Daylight bulbs you use around the house aren't bright enough, hmmm....I'm at a stand point. I have to do this today! I guess I could try those work lamps you find at hardware stores...this would be cheaper in the long run. I am shooting digital, so it is easy to reset the white balance to adjust to any type of bulb I get.
Sorry to vent my frustrations...but this is on my to-do list and I was looking forward to crossing it off today. It has to be done before Friday. Surely there's something else to do, a potter is never bored.
