But first they must be able to see it!
If your selected art-lighting team doesn’t own and use a light meter, they are unqualified! If they don’t bring test equipment and rigs to put temporary lighting in place so they can check the values, effects, and appearances, they (quite frankly) don’t know what they are doing.
Each canvas, statue, or subject in any medium, has distinct needs to optimize its appearance. Some objects must be lit in a plain-field, with no sparkles or highlights; other subjects (e.g. automobiles or Fabergé Eggs, need the twinkle effect to emphasize highlights and points of interest.
There are also temperatures of colors in the “white” portion of the spectrum that can produce the same effect in existence when the art was created, so that it appears as the artist intended. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, and anyone who tries to tell you so is inexperienced, misguided, or simply incompetent.
We know all the available solutions for lighting—particularly art lighting—and carry a truly broad collection of fixtures on board our vehicles so that we have the right equipment for the job.
