Lighting Options for Photography and Reptile Habitat Needs
I'm currently researching lighting options for a home addition that's currently in process at our primary residence. This is essentially a shop that's 30x20, but CRI and overall brightness are critical. I'm a breeder of high-end Leopard geckos (reptiles), and accurate photography (color representation) is an absolute must. I can only assume that I should be targeting a CRI of 90 or higher. With my photography, I tend to err more on the side of daylight or cooler about Kelvin and have a strong distaste for what I would consider 'warm' lighting.
We are happy to confirm that we have several products available which could be a great match for your photography and reptile habitat needs. Further, we can also confirm that the vast majority of our products offer a CRI higher than 95.
As a starting point, you may find value in our Lumen Estimation Calculator tool. By inputting the dimensions of the room including ceiling height, as well as selecting the primary use of the room, the tool can suggest a total lumen output and suggest the number of products required to meet the illumination goal.
In the interim, we might recommend the NorthLux line of products, which are designed with photography and capture in mind. You may also be interested in our 99 CRI Absolute Series products, which offer D50 and D65 light that is virtually indistinguishable from full daylight.
