This is primarily directed at my friends who actually showed up for freshman physics when they were in college.
In a photography discussion forum, someone was asking where to get a good bulb for a lightbox, so that colors were rendered correctly. A respondent said not to worry about it-- to just use any old light, shoot raw, and then correct the colors later. This seemed like a bad idea to me, since you ran the risk of losing some of the colors. As I was typing, though, I realized I was only about 95% certain of what I was saying so I sprinkled caveats liberally around my message. Tell me if I'm right or wrong.
You might be able to find a daylight bulb at Home Depot. Try looking for things that are intended for plants.
How about it, lazyweb?
