Troubleshooting Electronic Devices

Once we upgraded our home by adding a new sound system and home theater system, we found ourselves neck-deep in electrical device problems. It seemed like no matter how hard we tried, we just couldn't figure out how to troubleshoot some of the devices. It was frustrating. Fortunately, a friend of ours took the time to come over and teach us more about figuring out electrical issues. After a little work, we were able to get all of our systems working beautifully. I wanted to make this blog to help other homeowners who might be bad with electronics. Read on to learn how to troubleshoot your gadgets.

Top Features To Look For In A Bicolor Light Tube For Your Photography Business

by Summer Li

In photography, you spend much of your time focusing on shadow and light, manipulation shadow and light, and looking for fixtures that help you achieve perfected shadow and light for a shot. Of all of the lighting sources you can invest in as a professional photographer, a bicolor tube light could be one of the best. These lights give you multidimensional light distribution in a portable package, but there are so many to choose from, it can be difficult to pick the right one. Here are a few features to look for in a good bicolor light tube for your photography business. 

Flexibility - There are rigid light tubes that act as more permanent fixtures or fixtures that can be used as more of a flashlight, but there are also bicolor light tubes that are created in a tubular shape but are completely flexible. These designs give you the ability to bend the tube in different directions so you can achieve the right light distribution in specific areas. There are longer versions that are excellent for photography because the tube can be bent and twisted so the subject is always illuminated to a degree that you need for the best shot. 

Dimmer Switch - Even with the bicolor design that basically gives you two shades of light to work with, you may find that one light form or the other is still simply too bright. A dimmer switch on the bicolor light tube allows you even further control over the level of light you have to work with from the tube. Look for a model that has a dimmer switch to allow full range of the brightness of the light from the tube. 

Lightweight Portability - Your photography business can take you and your camera from outdoor weddings and indoor receptions to summer days outside and winter days in a bleak interior. You need a bicolor light that is not hard or cumbersome to carry with you from place to place, with features that allow easy carrying and transport. Therefore, make sure you pick up a bicolor tube that is small and compact enough to pick up and carry with you from shoot to shoot. 

In the end, a good bicolor light can change everything about how you look at scene and shoot lighting for your photography business. Check with a specialty lighting store, like Colt LED, in your area for more information about bicolor light tubes for photography use.
